With her choreographic work, Sasha Waltz has always sought to be in dialogue with other art forms. In her new production, she collaborates with the artist and fashion designer Iris van Herpen, the light designer Urs Schönebaum and Soundwalk Collective for the first time.
These two artistic partners are equally committed to interdisciplinary research and collaboration across artistic/academic fields.Iris van Herpen combines traditional craftsmanship with innovative digital technologies to produce her visionary art, which often culminates in the creation of sculptural works. Urs Schönebaum is a light artist in the best sense of the term. The elements of dance, costume design and light design are the three pillars of the piece which Sasha Waltz will develop with 14 dancers from her company.
For »Kreatur« Sasha Waltz examines the phenomena of existence against the background of a disrupted society: power and a lack of power, dominance and weakness, freedom and control, community and isolation.
