Ludwig van Beethoven

Diego Noguera Berger​


In »Beethoven 7«, Sasha Waltz and an ensemble of 14 dancers devote themselves to the complete »Symphony No. 7 in A major (op. 92)« by Ludwig van Beethoven. This music, composed in 1812 at the end of the composer's life when he was already going deaf, resonates with questions of his time that still play a role for us today: the failure of a revolution, the (forced) return to old traditions, the friction between the desire for social transformation and restoration and the associated loss of freedom and future prospects.


At the beginning of the evening, Sasha Waltz takes up these themes and reinterprets them from a contemporary perspective to the live electronic sounds of the Chilean composer Diego Noguera with the title »Freiheit/Extasis«, which were commissioned and developed during the creation process. How do personal freedom and social

constraints relate to each other?

World Premiere

11 March 2023

Radialsystem, Berlin

We would like to draw your attention to the fact that an increased noise level is to be expected during the first part of »Beethoven 7« for a duration of approx. 10 minutes. In addition, bass tones in a low frequency range can lead to physically noticeable vibrations.
