Kindertanzcompany by Sasha Waltz & Guests – Terry Riley

The children's dance company Sasha Waltz & Guests will dance "In C - next generation" at the Radialsystem at the beginning of December and thus for the first time a repertoire piece by Sasha Waltz in its own variation. Since the beginning of 2022, they have been working on the movement material of Sasha Waltz's choreography "In C", which is based on the piece of the same name by Terry Riley - and is a colorful excursion into minimal music.


Together with five experienced "In C" performers*, the children and young people engage with the 53 choreographic figures and develop their own interpretation of the structured but playful improvisation. The 30-minute piece features about 30 young dancers, ages 12 to 20, on stage.

In 2021, Sasha Waltz and her dancers began a novel artistic process. Based on Terry Riley's revolutionary and open composition of the same name from 1964, they developed choreographic material that follows a similarly variable structure and therefore leaves room for ever new variations.
