Werkschau Sasha Waltz & Guests
Allee der Kosmonauten
07./08.04.20

Dance
1h

In 1996, Allee der Kosmonauten was the first premiere at the newly founded Sophiensæle in Berlin Mitte. Created at the cusp of a new epoch, 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. The lack of tenderness gives rise to uncomfortable comedy. Allee der Kosmonauten is one of a number of early Sasha Waltz projects which explore everyday worlds as spaces for dance interpretation. Created at the cusp of a new epoch, the piece recounts an era of living together without escape routes.
