Mr Gaga

A tribute to the Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin, whose own movement language, Gaga, and eccentric views on choreography have contributed greatly to the development of modern dance in recent decades. Heymann attended rehearsals of the Batsheva Dance Company, where Naharin has been artistic director and choreographer since 1990. Surprisingly, Naharin only started his formal dance training at the age of 22. He danced in several renowned companies, including the Martha Graham and Maurice Bejart dance companies, but it wasn’t until he became a choreographer that he truly flourished. With a chronology that includes stunning dance excerpts, Heymann shows how Naharin turned Batsheva Dance Company into a leading international dance institution when he returned to Israel.

Tempo tipsar! Emilie Löfgren, redaktör för programtidningen.

I want to tell about my favorite films The Artist and the Thief; an exciting film about how a theft becomes the beginning of an unlikely friendship where they are both forced to face demons from the past. Our Time Machine is a great movie about creative anxiety, a father suffering from dementia who's memories  become increasingly blurred and the director's longing for his own family.
