‘Mr Gaga’

a1e0a2_48b07cbe9db5431bb73e2015d9921b86A fascinating biopic of the genius that is Ohad Naharin, one of the world’s most important choreographers and artistic director of Israel’s Batsheva Dance Co.

With the occasional input from other collaborators, early footage of childhood on the kibbutz and 80s archival footage dancing in New York, director Tomer Heymann (Paper Dolls, It Kinda Scares Me) wisely recognises the charm of Naharin himself speaks volumes. Intimate and insightful, its the celebration of the dance itself that makes Mr Gaga a truly glorious documentary.
