»Kreatur« at Radialsystem in December with sound installation

Sasha Waltz’ choreography »Kreatur« will be back at Radialsystem Berlin 19th through 22nd December, accompanied by a sound installation of Hanno Leichtmann, a long time collaborator of Sasha Waltz & Guests.

 

For »Kreatur« Sasha Waltz with her 14 dancers 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.

Since its world premiere in Berlin in June 2017 the choreography has been touring internationally to Athens, Avignon, Barcelona, Bruxelles, Dijon, Essen, Lisbon and Rome. After further performances in New York, St. Pölten and Luxembourg the piece will come back to the Radialsystem for 4 performances in Dezember 2018. 2019, »Kreatur« can be seen at Teatro Arriaga in Bilbao, at La Viellette in Paris as well as at the Opera in Cologne.

The performance dates are framed by an installation by sound artist and longtime collaborator of Sasha Waltz & Guests Hanno Leichtmann. He looped and alienated different sounds of the pieces from the past 25 years and fused them together, making it a new composition. The listener can therefore embark on an auditory journey through 25 years of Sasha Waltz & Guests. On two days the installation will be accompanied by improvisations of dancers who were part of the choreographies by Sasha Waltz. The interaction of sound and embodied memory originates moving memories.
