Radical Movie Club – Mr. Gaga
This Sunday we will pick up the lost tradition of the Radical Movie Club to share an interesting documentary!
On Sunday evening, we provide a relaxing way to finish your weekend and start your week with some things to think about: movie screenings in the big and comfy room of Andrými! We want to share interesting / political / unknown / all-time favorite / random movies and spend some good time watching them and talking about them. For everyone who wants to escape a bit from life while learning a few things at the same time!
This time, we are going to screen the documentary “Mr. Gaga”, released in 2015 by Tomer Heymann about the Israeli contemporary dancer and choreographer Ohad Naharin, who developed Gaga, a movement language and pedagogy that has defined his company’s training and continues to characterize Israeli contemporary dance.
“Ohad Naharin, artistic director of the Batsheva Dance Company, is regarded as one of the most important choreographers in the world. Meeting him at a critical turning point in his personal life, this spirited and insightful documentary will introduce you to a man with great artistic integrity and an extraordinary vision. Filmed over a period of eight years, director Tomer Heymann mixes intimate rehearsal footage with an extensive unseen archive and breathtaking dance sequences.
This story of an artistic genius who redefined the language of modern dance is guaranteed to leave you skipping.”
The movie will be in English with German subtitles. There are short parts in the film that are spoken in Hebrew, in these parts we will provide a simultaneous interpretation to English.
Andrými is a radical social center and a community where values of equality and freedom are fought for. It’s purpose is to be an open space for grassroot groups and individuals to meet and organise.

The building is currently not wheelchair accessible, but it is our top priority to make it so and we are working on getting city approval to make changes to the building. There is a step before the garden gate and then 5 steps leading to the main entrance, each 17 cm high, door widths in the building vary between 50 cm (upstairs washroom door) and 80 cm (entrance door).
The bathrooms are so far only on the upper floor and in the basement. The door to the meeting room is 75 cm wide (as most other doors in the building). There is no bathroom on the ground floor. The washrooms are on the upper floor and in the basement. They are gender neutral, and have both adult and child-sized toilets and sinks.
Andrými er flutt í nýtt húsnæði á Bergþórugötu 20. Húsið er því miður ekki aðgengilegt fyrir hjólastóla í augnablikinu en það er mikið forgangsatriði hjá okkur að gera fyrstu hæð hússins aðgengilega sem fyrst. Við erum enn að bíða eftir samningi frá borginni sem myndi gera okkur kleift að gera breytingar á byggingunni. Teikningar af húsinu eru komnar til arkítekts sem er að vinna í teikningu af rampi og aðgengilegu klósetti svo við getum sent þær til Minjastofnunar í umsagnarskyldu og svo til borgarinnar.
Það er eitt þrep við hliðið að garðinum og svo fimm þrep sem leiða upp að aðalinngangi. Hvert þrep er 17sm hátt. Breidd dyra í húsinu er á milli 50sm (dyr að baðherberginu á efri hæð) og 80sm (aðaldyrnar). Dyrnar að fundarherberginu eru 75sm á breidd eins og flestar aðrar dyr í húsinu.
Baðherbergin eru einungis á efri hæð og í kjallara eins og er. Bæði baðherbergin eru kynlaus.
