Be inspired by Gallim Dance, a New York City-based contemporary dance company. The company uses a new dance language called GaGa that incorporates past and present movement invention practices fueled by human emotion.
In modern dance, improvisation has always been at the root of the choreographic process. In the early 20th century, dance pioneers Isadora Duncan and Ruth St. Denis employed movement invention and exploration practices inspired by the sheer joy of simply moving. In the 1960s, postmodern choreographers Yvonne Rainer and Trisha Brown incorporated spontaneous, pedestrian, task-based movements to develop choreography. Such are the practices incorporated into the dance language GaGa.
Gallim's mission is "to play inside the imagination, to find juxtapositions of the mind and body that resonate in the soul, to investigate our limitations and pleasures, and to realize the endless human capacity for inspiration."
