25 years of Sasha Waltz & Guests: Preview of our program until summer 2019

25 years of Sasha Waltz & Guests – the anniversary continues: A new piece at the Volksbühne Berlin, repertory with longtime partners, »Körper« and »Kreatur« accompanied by a photo exhibition and a sound installation in December, the annual showing of the Kindertanzcompany, Dabke Community Dance and world wide touring.

A new piece at the Volksbühne Berlin and repertory with longtime partners
In November the Berlin public can look forward to seeing the choreographic opera »Orfeo« again at the Staatsoper Unter den Linden. The production will be performed for the first time since its German premiere in 2015. After a pause of three years the piece »Continu« will also be shown again at the Haus der Berliner Festspiele in March 2019. And on the 7th March 2019 a new piece by Sasha Waltz will have its world premiere, for the first time at the Volksbühne Berlin.

»Körper« and »Kreatur« accompanied by photo exhibition and sound installation
Two special highlights of our anniversary season: End of December the performance-series of »Kreatur« at the Radialsystem will be accompanied by an installation of the sound artist Hanno Leichtmann, a longtime collaborator of the company. He alienated and looped different sounds out of pieces from the past 25 years and fused them into a new composition. By entering the installation the listener embarks on an auditive journey through the oeuvre of Sasha Waltz & Guests. And during the performances of »Körper« at the  Haus der Berliner Festspiele beginning of December the company will exhibit photographs of Bernd Uhlig, who documented the production process in 2000. Sasha Waltz‘ signature piece recently celebrated its 200th performance in Berkeley, CA during our US-tour.

Showing Kindertanz and Dabke Community Dance at the Radialsystem
The Kindertanzcompany Berlin will present its annual showing at the Radialsystem end of November: This year, among others, the group of »teens« under the direction of Gabriel Galindez Cruz will give their research on the topics climat change and climat justice a choreographic shape. Subsequent to the showing on the 25th November together with Syrian dancer and choreographer Medhat Aldaabal and musician Ali Hasan the company again invites the public to a shared dance experience during the Dabke Community Dance Workshop a the Radialsystem.

»Dido & Aeneas« in Madrid and world wide touring
Next to the artistic work in and for Berlin the company will also be touring (inter)nationally during the season 2018/19: »Kreatur« will be performed in the frame of the Next Wave Festival at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York, at the Festspielhaus St. Pölten, the Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg, the Teatro Arriaga in Bilbao, at La Villette in Paris, at Kampnagel in Hamburg and at the Oper Köln. In the spring of 2019 the production »Continu« will travel to the Israeli Opera in Tel Aviv and Sasha Waltz‘ first choreographic Opera »Dido & Aeneas« will be performed again at the Teatro Real in Madrid.
