Kindertanzcompany by Sasha Waltz & Guests – Terry Riley

Sasha Waltz & Guests’ children’s dance company performs with “In C – nächste Generation” (“In C – next generation”), its own variation of a repertoire piece by Sasha Waltz.

Since the beginning of 2022, these young dancers have been working together with experienced "In C" performers on the 53 choreographic figures, and have developed their own interpretation of the structured but playful improvisation.

„The score of „In C“ consists of fifty-three musical phrases and reads like stage directions for musicians. The thought of translating these detailed instructions into dance through a choreographic exploration of the music appealed to me. The result is an experimental system of fifty-three movement phrases for a structured improvisation with clear rules and laws. The length of the piece remains variable, as does the number of musicians and dancers.“
