Sasha Waltz – A Portrait

    Free admission.

    The film is in German with English subtitles.

Sasha Waltz is one of Europe’s best-known and most exciting choreographers.

Her choreographies suprises with new formations, deep subjects and stunning aesthetic style. But she does not only work with dancers: the dialogue with all other art forms is her special interest. Live music has become an important element in her work. With her production of Dido & Aeneas in 2005 she developed a new genre: the choreographic opera. Her spectrum is broad: Purcell, Berlioz and Strawinsky, contemporary classical music and opera have become her favourite working fields. She worked twice with French contemporary composer Pascal Dusapin in Medea and Passion, and with Japanese composer Toshio Hosokawa for Matsukaze.

All these deep and beautifully choreographed pieces are featured in this film, where Sasha Waltz gives us insight to her work. This film portrait by Brigitte Kramer draws a line from 2005 until today, the most important years of Sasha Waltz‘ international career.

The screening is free admission. Please reserve your ticket to the film.

The film is in English.

The workshops and screening are produced in co-operation with Goethe-Institut Finland.
