Werkschau Sasha Waltz & Guests


Großes Haus

In spring 2021 Sasha Waltz & Guests will continue the cooperation with the Volksbühne Berlin: the company will present a retrospective. In addition to three pieces by Sasha Waltz from different creative periods, the audience will experience an exhibition and film programme as well as performative interventions. The opening of the Sasha Walz & Guests retrospective at the Volksbühne is the revival of the choreography noBody.

noBody closes the circle of a three-part choreographic cycle about people and their bodies that Sasha Waltz had been working on continuously from 1999–2002. In the first part of Körper she investigated the anatomy and physique of humans, relating the dancers' bodies to architecture, science and history. S traces the origins of life, Eros and sensuality. noBody poses the question of the metaphysical existence of the human, focusing on the absence of the body as a theme and confronting the emotions that the realisation of our mortality releases in us. “What is a human beyond its body? What is the eternal within ourselves?” In noBody Waltz as choreographer, together with 25 dancers, tackles the challenge of making the non-physical, the spiritual, visible through the body.

The retrospective was originally planned for 02.04.-13.04.20 and will now take place in May 2021.
