The story of an artistic genius who redefined the language of modern dance, filmed over a period of eight years by director Tomer Heymann (PAPER DOLLS).
Ohad Naharin, artistic director of the Batsheva Dance Company, is regarded as one of the most important choreographers in the world, and created the daring form of dance and “movement language” Gaga. When he was 22, he was invited to perform with the prestigious Martha Graham dance company, and attended Juilliard and the School of American Ballet simultaneously. Moving back to Israel, Naharin became the Artistic Director of the Batsheva Dance Company, developing gaga within his own ensemble. Even after achieving worldwide acclaim, Naharin continues to fight every day, sometimes with his own dancers, once even with the president of Israel, to make his vision come to life.
