The tension between music, choreography, and architecture forms an important centre of power for the work of Sasha Waltz and the soon-to-be 20-year-old project series »Dialogues«. After artistic explorations of the Jewish Museum and the Neues Museum in Berlin, a medieval monastery complex in Montpellier, an old mansion in Calcutta, or the gutted Palace of the Republic, the choreographer will devote herself to one of the largest and original Palaces in Europe in the summer of 2021. Accompanied by the sounds of Jean-Philippe Rameau and Henry Purcell, the audience wanders through the Blühendes Barock from a blossom-sea in the north garden to the Court of Honour of the Ludwigsburg Palace. The danced Parcours brings picturesque scenes to life and ends in an exciting stylistic break by sunset: the new choreography »In C« to the same-named music by Terry Riley, the founder of minimal music.
We would like to thank the Blühendes Barock Ludwigsburg!
