with Gianni Notarnicola

Dec 14 – Dec 17, 2023

Gaga classes open to non dancers to discover the joy and energy of the body in movement.

From Thursday December 14th, to Sunday the 17th, Gianni Notarnicola, dancer of the Batsheva Dance Company, choreographer and freelance artist, will hold Gaga/people classes: Thursday, Friday and Sunday from 10:00 to 11:00 and Saturday from 9:45 to 10:45.

Following all the lessons of Gaga/people you can also discover the infinite potential of the Gravity Training System, with lessons from 11:30 to 12:30 - by reservation.

Also Saturday morning, a lesson in Adult Ballet from 11:15 to 12:15 is dedicated to those who want to learn or rediscover the concepts and basic elements of classical dance.

Come and experience the language of movement devised by Ohad Naharin and rediscover the slumbering animal in each of us. Gianni will accompany us on a journey of liberation of the body, helping us to unlock movement, sensations and emotions. He will teach us how to awaken our muscles and joints and, also through the use of the voice, to let go, to be less suspicious and to open ourselves to the pleasure and sensations that dance and physical effort instill in our body and our mind.

    Gianni Notarnicola was born in 1996 in Monopoli, Italy. He joined the Junior Dance Company in 2010, working for Sara Accettura, Osnat Kelner and Kerry Nicholls and danced with Equilibrio Dinamico under the direction of Roberta Ferrara in South Italy. In 2015, he moved to Milan to work with Matteo Levaggi. He attended NOD in Torino and later joined the Kibbutz Gaaton Dance Workshop, directed by Einav Levi and Yaniv Abraham. In the years 2017-2018, he worked for various choreographers including Bosmat Nossan, Yaniv Abraham, Guy Shomroni, Eyal Dadon, Jason Danino Holt and Ido Gidron. He danced for Avshalom Pollak Dance Theatre in 2019, joined the Batsheva Ensemble in 2019 performing pieces of Sharon Eyal, Nadav Zelner and Noa Zuk and joined the Batsheva Dance Company in 2021. In 2022, he premiered in his first creation with the company, MOMO, as a dancer and co-collaborator.

    Since he was teaching dance classes in South Italy, Gianni always had a creative voice and choreographed on his own for dance classes and premiered his debut work as choreographer in 2018 with his solo KAMA. The source material of his creations is drawn from his current emotional states. Since then, Gianni restaged KAMA and created LA BATTAGLIA, a duet performance with the Israeli cellist Eilon Damari. Simultaneously to his solo creations, Gianni started a collaboration with Billy Barry in 2022, premiering their first duet B.O.A.T.S. and in 2023, they premiered their new duet G.O.A.T.S at the Tel Aviv Dance Festival.

    Gianni is currently a dancer for the Batsheva Dance Company, dancing and performing works by Ohad Naharin all around the world.
