Saar Harari Saar was born on a farm in Israel to an artistic family and danced until the age of 18, at which time he joined the Israeli Army for 6 years. He left the Army and started to dance again at the age of 24. In 1998 he created his first work as an independent choreographer for a dance festival at the Suzanne Dellal Centre in Tel Aviv.
In 2001, Saar established LeeSaar The Company with Lee Sher, relocating to NYC in 2004. The company has been commissioned to create full evening dance programs by theaters and festivals in New York City, Portland, Austin, Seattle, Vancouver, Montclair, and other destinations. The Company has 9 permanent dancers and rehearses daily. The creation process is built, evolves and draws from the Gaga movement language. Saar is the Executive Producer of Gaga USA.
Saar received an American green card for his art-making. He is the recipient of the Six Point Fellowship in choreography, a Guggenheim Fellowship in choreography, and the New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship. Contact Saar about Gaga in the U.S. at [email protected].
