Gaga Workshops with Maree ReMalia
Gaga is the movement language that was developed by Ohad Naharin throughout many years, parallel to his work as a choreographer and the artistic director of Batsheva Dance Company. Maree ReMalia guided us in two separate workshops, one for each of the Gaga “tracks,” Gaga/dancers and Gaga/people.
July 13 – a hands on workshop with Nick Trotter, for singers and actors. An introduction to the basics of masked comedy performance, appropriate for beginning students and experienced actors alike. Following a discussion from Nick Trotter on the history and traditions of Commedia, we explored levels of physical tension and neutrality (which are essential to playing a mask) and basic status play. We then explored Face Masks and Character Half-Masks, using improvisation to explore characters, speech and the physical relationship that Commedia actors must have with their audience.
