Following her last two projects – »Kreatur« and »Exodos«, which plumbed timeless, in ways archaic, levels of human existence – in her new piece, Sasha Waltz focuses on life in the present, which is embedded within artificial structures.
»rauschen« deals with a society that inhabits a perfect environment, but has lost touch with the world. The intensive development process with twelve dancers draws heavily upon experimentation. The main questions here include: What language of movement results from conditions in which mind and body are inextricably entwined with technology? What position do we find ourselves in, surrounded by an overabundance of comforts that are simultaneously a means of control? What is the horizon of a globally networked life that has simultaneously forgotten the world? The semicircular stage area can thus be understood as a call to interrogate and explore anew our own inner panoramas. The choreography leads to a process of revelation, in which the piece’s visual and dance-oriented languages are seized and transformed by a subversive power.
After the Berlin performances »rauschen« will go on tour for the first time: The choreography will be travelling to Kampnagel in Hamburg in January 2020; in May 2020 the production can be seen at the Opera La Monnaie / De Munt in Brüssel.
