Gaga / People – Natalia Iwaniec
Wednesdays 19 Feb - 25 Mar 2020, 19.00 - 20.15
After our sell-out workshops last year, we are delighted to welcome back Natalia Iwaniec and Gaga/ People.
Gaga/People classes are taught by dancers who have worked closely with Gaga creator Ohad Naharin. Teachers guide the participants using a series of evocative instructions that build one on top of the other. Rather than copying a particular movement, each participant in the class actively explores these instructions, discovering how he or she can interpret the information and perform the task at hand. Gaga/people classes offer a creative framework for participants to connect to their bodies and imaginations, increase their physical awareness, improve their flexibility and stamina, and experience the pleasure of movement in a welcoming, accepting atmosphere.
Open to people aged 16+, regardless of their background in dance or movement. No previous dance experience is needed.
Participants should wear comfortable clothes and be prepared to dance barefoot or in socks. It is advisable to bring a bottle of water and a towel for use after class.
Natalia was born in Poland and is now a freelance dancer and teacher based in London. As a dancer she has collaborated with choreographers Yasmeen Godder, Iwona Olszowska, Ella Ben-Aharon, Rhiannon Faith and others. Natalia became a qualified teacher of Gaga in August 2012. Since then she travels all over Europe and Israel to teach Gaga. She is also choreographing and recently created a piece The Link for dance students in STW in Poznan, Poland and FORMal in residency in Scenario Pubblico in Sicily. Natalia is co-founder and member of NaNa Collective that is based in London. Natalia just premiered her solo work Birdland in July during International Dance Week Budapest.
