Ohad Naharin, artistic director of the Batsheva Dance Company, is regarded as one of the most important choreographers in the world. Following him during a critical turning point in his personal life, this spirited and insightful documentary, “Mr. Gaga,” will introduce you to a man with great artistic integrity and extraordinary vision. Filmed over a period of eight years, director Tomer Heymann mixes intimate rehearsals with unseen footage and breathtaking dance sequences. The evening will begin with a performance by the electrifyingly uncompromising, Brooklyn-based contemporary company, GALLIM. Making their SummerStage debut, the company, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary, is led by former Batsheva Ensemble member, Andrea Miller, who was recently named the 2017/2018 Artist in Residence at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the first choreographer to ever hold that distinction.
