Sasha Waltz & Guests

Women

Together with Sasha Waltz, 20 female dancers engage in rituals of femininity and explore the body images associated with them. What happens when women come together and form alliances? And how can our knowledge of the past inform the development of new feminist movements which move beyond a battle of the sexes? Inspired in part by Judy Chicago’s iconic work “The Dinner Party” (1979, Brooklyn Museum, New York), the Berlin choreographer is working for the first time with an all-woman ensemble. In Karl Friedrich Schinkel’s St. Elisabeth Church, the live performance interacts with one of Berlin’s architectural icons, as do the dancers with the audience members, who move freely through the space.
