Sasha Waltz’ »Continu« (2010) generates a field of tension between choreographic, musical and visual currents of energy, while the title denotes the continuity of the perpetual forces of nature. The choreography for 24 dancers focusses on group dynamics: The relation between the individual and the group, on gender relations, but also on powers influencing the group dynamics from inside and outside. The epochal symphonic work »Arcana« by Edgard Varèse represents the musical core of »Continu«, which is then complemented by compositions by other artists like Claude Vivier and Iannis Xenakis, whose percussion solo »Rebonds B« is live performed by renowned percussionist Robyn Schulkowsky.
