»Continu« travels to Tbilisi, Georgia!

After our first guest performance in Georgia with »Travelogue – Twenty to eight« in October 2015 Sasha Waltz’s choreography »Continu« is invited to the GIFT – Georgian International Festival of Arts in Tbilisi. The 20. and 21. of October the archaic piece will be performed at the Georgian National Opera Theatre. Sasha Waltz & Guests is grateful to play another time in the Georgian capital and honored to contribute in the frame of the German Georgian year 2017.

»Continu« (2010) for 21 dancers can be considered Sasha Waltz’ most expressive work.
The epochal orchestral work »Arcana« (1927) by Edgard Varèse represents its musical core. Thematically, »Continu« showcases the conflictual relationship between individuals and a group or society. In light of the recent events and experiences concerning flight, migration and the diversity of cultural identities, new ways of perceiving this piece unfold.
