Agami's research and interpretation to Gaga.
With the blessing of creator Ohad Naharin, Agami began teaching Gaga back in 2003 while dancing with Ensemble Batsheva. For the past 17 years she continues to periodically offer Gaga workshops on her own throughout the world. Agami’s classes are informed by the great Gaga movement language classes and her fine, detailed explanations help her students participate intellectually, mentally, and physically all at once. Agami believes that in order to fully own the revelations in the body we must understand the logic and fantasy behind each experience in class.
Agami's recent residency at the Center for Ballet and the Arts at NYU focused on developing a new class that allows the classical ballet structures and her research with Gaga Movement Language and Ate9 Company Class to meet in Harmony. Listening to her body, she created classes that find a new dialogue with the old methods, encouraging dancers to bridge their specific needs and the grand goals of the ballet method.
The new and endless research with Ate9 dancers and guest students is attempting to revive the classical research and discover a rich mutation of past/present ideas.
When and where are Ate9 Company classes and Gaga classes offered?
