From March 26th through 30th 2019 the dancers Zaratiana Randrianantenaina (born in Madagascar) and Orlando Rodriguez from Sasha Waltz & Guests gave a workshop for 35 young dancers in Madagascar's capitol Tananarivo on invitation of the Insitut Francais and the Goethe Center.
 
The workshop lastet four days and offered valuable insights into the artistic world of Sasha Waltz with a special focus on the production »Kreatur« (2017). Some of the participating dancers came from all over the country to learn about the body language and movement vocabulary of Sasha Waltz & Guests from the two dancers.
 
On the last day of the workshop the participants presented their studies on the big stage of the Institut Francais in front of an audience of about 200 people, including the German embassador in Madagascar. The presentation was followed by a screening of the filmic version of »Kreatur« and was part of the program »La Danse en Partage« of the Institut Francais Madagascar.
