In Beethoven 7, Sasha Waltz and her dancers devote themselves to the complete Symphony No. 7 in A major (op. 92) by Ludwig van Beethoven. This music resonates with questions of his time that still play a role for us today: the failure of a revolution, the (forced) return to old traditions, the friction between the desire for social transformation and restoration and the associated loss of freedom and future prospects. At the beginning of the evening, Sasha Waltz takes up these themes and reinterprets them from a contemporary perspective to the live electronic sounds of Chilean composer Diego Noguera with the title Freiheit/Extasis.

We invite you to dive deep into the choreographic language of Sasha Waltz and her latest piece in a workshop.

The workshops will be held by dancers Orlando Rodriguez and Rosa Dicuonzo.

Wed 15.5. at 11–13. Open level. Dance House Helsinki's rehersal studio.
