Mr Gaga, sur les pas d'Ohad Naharin

The founder of the famous "Gaga" movement, Ohad Naharin, is one of the most imposing figures on the world of contemporary dance. Known for his iconoclastic approach and strong personality, the Israeli choreographer reveals himself fully in this documentary exploring his personal and professional life. Without attempting to hide his darker side, Naharin recalls his difficult beginnings, the loss of his wife and life-long artistic partner, the torment of creativity and the importance of making life part of an artistic approach. Alternating between rare, exciting archival material and contemporary rehearsal scenes, Mr Gaga is essential viewing for anyone who loves dance or has an interest in the creative process.
