YALE DANCE THEATER: GAGA/DADA

Filling an art gallery with dancers and guests among pieces of art is quite the task. But, the Yale University Art Gallery does it with ease. The performance by the Yale Dance Theater and the Elm City Dance Collective on April 3rd was a profound cohesion of Gaga dance juxtaposed against the Dada exhibit on view. 

"Yale Dance Theater and the Gallery invited dance artists Saar Harari and Lee Sher (of LeeSaar The Company) to create a new choreographic work for the gallery spaces. Harari and Sher have used Gaga, a movement language developed by choreographer Ohad Naharin, as a tool to create a performance that juxtaposes 21st-century Gaga aesthetics with the Dada works of art."
