Sasha Waltz & Guests will not only close the current season, but also begin the new one 2022/23 with »Kreatur«: Sasha Waltz’ iconic choreography will come back to the Berlin audience at Radialsystem after more than 3 years from August 25 to 28, 2022 – ticket sales have startet.
In Sasha Waltz’ choreography »Kreatur«, dance is the result of tensions between creatures who share the same habitat. Collective experiences of turmoil, ecstasy and the seeking of shelter merge the dancers into one single creature, which breaks back again into seperate fates, drifting into new conflicts and connections. States of power and powerlessness, dominance and weakness, community and isolation, sickness and desire all appear as facets within nature’s iridescence. The struggling of these creatures with the chaos of their own impulses reflects the private and societal challenges of our present.
»Kreatur« is an interplay of artistic voices which share a decisively interdisciplinary approach. The sculptural, organic as well as technoid costumes were created by Iris van Herpen. The Dutch fashion designer is known throughout the world for her progressive work which combines traditional craft with digital technology. Urs Schönebaum designs lighting concepts for stagings at theatres and opera houses, art exhibitions, performances and installations worldwide, working with artists such as Marina Abramović, Robert Wilson and Michael Haneke. The musicians of Soundwalk Collective (Berlin/New York) create genre-dissolving sound compositions, using methods from the fields of anthropology, ethnography and psychogeography. Recently they were represented at documenta 14 in Athens/Kassel and collaborated with Patti Smith on the album »Killer Road«.
