Mr. Gaga tells the story of Ohad Naharin, renowned choreographer and artistic director of the Batsheva Dance Company, an artistic genius who redefined the language of modern dance “Between riveting excerpts from individual dances — those more recently filmed seen in high-grade, multi-camera footage utilizing different aspect ratios to heighten their vivid stage imagery — Naharin is shown rehearsing his company and creating new pieces. Although probably on good behavior while the camera’s running, he can be a harsh taskmaster who frequently berates his very diverse, international company — not for technical faults, but for insufficient emotional commitment. He demands they give their all and then some, a sacrifice they say is rewarded by the work itself.” Variety
