Sasha Waltz & Guests



Production Details / Press Releases

Sasha Waltz & Guests and Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop constitute a potent artistic alliance. In 2009, as part of Sasha Waltz’s »Dialoge« series, the two ensembles, in collaboration with Vocalconsort Berlin, created the artistic inauguration of the Neues Museum (New Museum) by David Chipperfield, enchanting thousands of viewers.

»Metamorphoses« consists of six self-contained »miniatures« – three duets and three group pieces, to works by Ruth Wiesenfeld, Iannis Xenakis, Georg Friedrich Haas and György Ligeti – each a discourse with the architecture of the Neues Museum.
