Our journey continues: We are very excited to be travelling to Le Maillon – Théâtre de Strasbourg for the first time in the company’s history, presenting Sasha Waltz’ legendary choreography »Allee der Kosmonauten« from 14. to 17. October 2020.
Created at the cusp of a new epoch in 1996, the piece recounts an era of living together without an escape route. In a housing block in former East Berlin, feelings and movements of a three generation family build up dangerously around their living room couch. The uncomfortably comical exploration of this anxious space, crowded and colliding, triggers solutions at the limits of danceability and gains new acuteness in recent times.
In 1996, »Allee der Kosmonauten« was the first premiere at the newly founded Sophiensaele in Berlin Mitte. Since then, the production in its 24 year long history has seen large parts of the world with performances in 25 countries and over 50 cities, amongst them tours to Asia, India, Russia, the US and of course many locations within Europe. In France, »Allee der Kosmonauten« has already toured to the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris, to the Opéra de Rouen Haute-Normandie – Théâtre des Arts aswell as to the Cité Musicale in Metz. The choreography in March 2019 celebrated its 150th stage performance at the Volksbühne Berlin and we are very excited to be presenting it now to the Strasburg audience for the first time. This is reason enough to again open a view into some archive material of the production:
