»In C« in July on tour in Cologne

Decreasing infection rates make slow but steady reopenings possible, also in art and culture. This makes it possible for us to go on tour and perform live for an audience at the end of this season. On July 1 and 2 the audience in Cologne and surroundings can look forward to see a performacne of Sasha Waltz’ latest work »In C« to the music by the same name of Terry Riley (1964). Ticket sales start on June 11.

In 2021, the dance company Sasha Waltz & Guests began an innovative artistic process that will result in the continuous production of both digital and live formats. Terry Riley’s »In C« (1964) forms the musical foundation of this, an open composition that was revolutionary at the time and is generally considered the first piece of minimalist music. Based on this milestone of music history, Sasha Waltz and her dancers developed choreographic material that follows a similarly variable structure and is deliberately designed not to be a finished stage piece.

On March 6th 2021 »In C« was performed in an online premiere on a livestream from the radialsystem in Berlin to the sounds of a recording by »Bang on a Can«. Now the choreography will not only be part of the new project »Dialoge 2021 – Ludwigsburg« in June at the Ludwigsburger Schlossfestpiele, but will tour to the Opera in Cologne to be performed for on July 1 and 2. Ticket sales start on June 11 and can be purchased here.
