Performance, Yale Dance Theater and ECDC: Gaga/Dada
Yale Dance Theater (YDT) and the Gallery have invited artists Saar Harari and Lee Sher to create a new choreographic work for YDT dancers and Elm City Dance Collective that incorporates Gaga, a movement language developed by choreographer Ohad Naharin. Gaga, which has become highly influential in international contemporary dance, is the focus of YDT’s spring semester project. On Saturday, April 2, 1pm: YDT students have an open rehearsal within the exhibition Everything Is Dada. Then, on Sunday, April 3 at 2pm, they perform the new piece in the space, juxtaposing the 21st-century Gaga aesthetic with Dada works of art. Generously sponsored by the Lydia Winston Malbin Fund; cosponsored by Yale Dance Theater, Dance Studies Curriculum, and the Theater Studies Program.
