Mirjam Karvat (Frankfurt am Main)
Gaga is a new way of gaining knowledge and self-awareness through your body. Gaga provides a framework for discovering and strengthening your body and adding flexibility, stamina, and agility while lightening the senses and imagination. Gaga raises awareness of physical weaknesses, awakens numb areas, exposes physical fixations, and offers ways for their elimination. The work improves instinctive movement and connects conscious and unconscious movement, and it allows for an experience of freedom and pleasure in a simple way, in a pleasant space, in comfortable clothes, accompanied by music, each person with himself and others.
Mirjam Karvat studied dance at the London Contemporary Dance School, Massage Therapy and Human Kinetics. She performed with the New Generations Dance Company and choreographed in an interdisciplinary collaboration at Theater Aarau/ Switzerland. Mirjam also participated as the main character in a film documentation about schizophrenia. Prior to joining the Gaga Teacher Training Program in 2011, she danced in the musical RENT in Basel/Switzerland. Mirjam teaches Gaga in Israel, Switzerland, and Germany.
