3.55 'CHANEL À L'OPERA'
PODCAST WITH OHAD NAHARIN
The Israeli choreographer, resident of the Tel Aviv-based Batsheva Dance Company, presents Decadance at the Opéra de Paris. A modular play based on sections from his unfinished works, transforms and adapts through a selection of pieces, variations and transitions. In an interview with Anne Berest, he addresses the issue of freedom through the understanding of rules and knowledge. He talks about his vision of movement and his dance techniques, such as the ‘Gaga’ method, which consists of listening to one's body in an unconventional way to better appreciate movement. To be a good dancer, explains the choreographer, passion, imagination and skills are the three essential qualities needed, complemented by the love of learning and research.
