A residency based on campuswide participation in Gaga, the language and exploration of physical research developed by the artistic director of Israel’s acclaimed Batsheva Dance Company, Ohad Naharin. Culminating in a performance of Naharin’s seminal work Echad Mi Yodea set on students of the Skidmore Dance Department, the Gaga residency is designed to facilitate a campuswide physical dialogue surrounding themes in modern Israeli and Jewish culture such as identity, otherness, and humanity.  Co-sponsored with the Dance Department.

This presentation is part of the Jacob Perlow Event Series and is co-sponsored by the Office of the Dean of Special Programs and the Dance Department. Funding is also provided by a gift from Beatrice Troupin.

Adults are $9/$12 and seniors/students are $5/$9 (Price range depending on seats selected.)

About the Jacob Perlow Series: A generous grant from the estate of Jacob Perlow—an immigrant to the United States in the 1920s, a successful businessman deeply interested in religion and philosophy and a man who was committed to furthering Jewish education—supports annual lectures and presentations to the college and Capital District community on issues broadly related to Jews and Judaism.
