Werkschau Sasha Waltz & Guests
noBody
02.–05.04.20

Dance

noBody completes the three-piece choreographic cycle about humans and their bodies which Sasha Waltz has been working on since 1999. In her piece Körper she investigates the anatomy and the physical appearance of the human being, relating her dancers' bodies to architecture, science, and history. S searches for the origin of life, of Eros, and of sensibility. noBody asks about the metaphysical existence of humanity. It addresses the absence of the body, and it confronts us with feelings aroused by our realisation of being mortal. "What does being human mean beyond having a body? Which part of us is immortal?" In noBody the choreographer, accompanied by 23 dancers, faces the challenge of rendering the non-physical visible through the physical body itself. noBody is co-produced by the Festival d'Avignon. In July 2002, the piece was performed eight times at Cour d'Honneur, Pope Palace. Its unique historical setting, together with the Mendelsohnian architecture of the Schaubühne, greatly influenced the development of this production.
