Overview

Video: Sasha Waltz TV ad

Sasha Waltz presents her most intimate and lyrical work, set to Schubert's shimmering Impromptus and lieder, in a stunning exploration of the vulnerability and beauty of the human body. Waltz, who has collaborated with the Berliner Philharmoniker, the Mariinsky Ballet, the Staatsoper, and the Opéra de Paris, employs a rotating company of "guests"—visual artists, choreographers, filmmakers, musicians, dancers—in her inventive works, and here features seven dancers, with music performed live by pianist Cristina Marton and mezzo-soprano Ruth Sandhoff.
