Based in Berlin, Sasha Waltz & Guests are known for developing highly original choreographic musical theatre performances. They have collaborated with more than 250 artists and ensembles from 25 countries on nearly 20 productions since being founded in 1993.
To mark the hundredth anniversary of Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring, Sasha Waltz premiered her own vision of the piece in 2013. The tension-charged and angular composition is characterised by a strong rhythm and a layering of constantly repeating musical motifs.
Earlier large-scale pieces of Waltz’ work, including her Medea (2007) and Continu (2010), showcased elements of Waltz’ research into rites and group dynamics, which now culminate in Sacre.
Sacre is presented at Sadler’s Wells as part of a three-part evening, together with Sasha Waltz’ choreographies of Scéne d’Amour (from Romeo and Juliet) with music by Berloiz, and Debussy’s L’Après-midi d’un faune.
