Mr. Gaga, that is, with a screening of the documentary about Ohad Naharin at Alamo Drafthouse, and three days of Gaga workshops at Arts Mission Oak Cliff.

published Thursday, January 4, 2018


The 2015 documentary Mr. Gaga is finally coming to DFW, with a screening at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 24 at the Alamo Drafthouse in the Cedars on the south side of downtown Dallas. (Video trailer above.) The screening is presented by Dallas Movement Lab, MocaMedia, Dallas Feldenkrais, Video Association of Dallas and TheaterJones.

This will be followed by three days of Gaga classes at Arts Mission Oak Cliff, led by dancer and choreographer Amy Diane Morrow, who graduated from the inaugural teacher training program directed by founder Ohad Naharin. Morrow will also lead a Q&A after the film.

Tickets for the film are not on sale yet, but you can find out more on the Facebook event page here.

A news release about the workshops follows:


Discover Yourself with an Innovative Movement Language

Gaga isn’t just a singer. First it was a movement language invented by acclaimed Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin. For three days in January, Dallas residents will have a chance to dive deep.

“While Gaga is a serious new way of training the body, it is also about connecting to pleasure and. . . realizing that there’s nothing wrong with being silly.”

— Gia Kourlas, The New York Times


The workshop begins Friday, January 26, and runs through Sunday, January 28. It takes place at Arts Mission Oak Cliff, 410 S. Windermere Ave., Dallas, TX 75208.

The workshop is open to non-dancers and dancers alike, age 16 and older. No previous experience is required.



Early Bird: $125 (thru Jan. 4)

Advance: $150 (Jan. 5 on)

Register on Brown Paper Tickets:

Amy Morrow, one of the first group of teachers trained by Naharin, will led the workshop. Morrow will guide participants using a series of evocative movement instructions that build on each other. Rather than copying a movement, each will actively explore these instructions, discovering how they interpret the information and perform the task at hand. It’s a creative framework for participants to connect to with their bodies and imagination, increase physical awareness, improve flexibility and stamina, and experience the pleasure of movement in a welcoming, accepting atmosphere.

Arts Mission Oak Cliff, a beautifully renovated former church, will host the workshop.


The complete workshop schedule is:

Friday, January 26, 7-9 pm

Saturday and Sunday, January 27 & 28, 11 am-3 pm

In conjunction with the workshop, Morrow will present a work in progress, “Conversation While Dancing,” on Saturday, January 26, from 8 to 9 pm. Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. For more information, visit:

Gaga is the primary practice used by Naharin’s company Batsheva. Gaga provides a framework for discovering and strengthening the human body and adding flexibility, stamina, and agility while lightening the senses and imagination. Gaga raises awareness of physical weaknesses, awakens numb areas, exposes physical fixations, and offers ways for their elimination. The work improves instinctive movement and connects conscious and unconscious movement, and it allows for an experience of freedom and pleasure in a simple way, in a pleasant space, in comfortable clothes, accompanied by music, each person with himself and others. Its emphasis on self-discovery complements Awareness Through Movement®.

Certified directly by Ohad Naharin in the inaugural teacher training program, Amy Morrow travels internationally offering Gaga & Toolbox Workshops as well as Ballet and Indian Dance. She is also a choreographer, consultant, and founder of AM Arts.

The January workshop is presented by Dallas Movement Lab, in partnership with The Theorists and Arts Mission Oak Cliff.
