Renowned contemporary choreographer Sasha Waltz is celebrated for her compelling imagery and body-focused choreography. Taking the body itself as her subject in Körper, Waltz combines clinical analysis and fantastical illusions as 13 dancers meld together to form strange chimerical creatures and squirm behind glass like scientific specimens, in a series of living tableaux.
Körper, meaning body in German, engages dancers in a variety of movements. Linking architecture and body, the production asks what is the body and how is it constructed. The dance analyses morality, the quest for immortality, and investigates reproduction in the age of genetic manipulation. Körper received its World Premiere in Berlin in 2000 and had its UK Premiere in the same year.
The development of innovative forms of performance and creation has become the most significant focus of the work of Sasha Waltz & Guests. The company was named an official Cultural ambassador of the European Union for the 2013 anniversary year. The company also received the 2014 George Tabori prize for exceptional artistic achievements over the last 20 years.
