Terry Riley​


In 2021, the dance company Sasha Waltz & Guests began a colorful and innovative artistic process that results in the continuous production of new formats. Terry Riley’s »In C« (1964) forms the musical foundation of this, an open composition that was revolutionary at the time and is generally considered the first piece of minimalist music. Sasha Waltz and 10 dancers developed choreographic material that follows a similarly variable structure.


The choreography is a playful system of 53 choreographic figures for a structured improvisation with rules and laws. Within this set of rules, the individual performer is given creative freedom, but this must always be in relation to the group – very similar to our democratic society, in which the limits of personal freedom end where the group is not violated. The roles of leadership and followers are not fixed, each performer can switch roles at any time. »In C« is a democratic piece about being part of a group as an individual, not an individual in the group.

 

Since the premiere on a live stream from the Radialsystem, Sasha Waltz’s choreography has been received with great enthusiasm by a live audience internationally. At the same time, it was passed on to a steadily growing international dance community: the choreographic material was recorded in video tutorials that can be made digitally accessible. You can find more information about this here.

World premiere on a live stream

Radialsystem, Berlin

The world is changing and our democracy is endangered by a continuing shift to the right. Our artistic work is a permanent search for empathy and humanity. It strives against all forms of discrimination, violence and ideology and stands up for the democratic values of an open and diverse society. This is what in particular the project »In C«, not only a political piece, but actually a democratic process in dance and music, stands for: »It's about making decisions alone and together, connecting with one another, to listen, supporting each other, growing together, giving each other space, to feel what is needed, what you can do for the good of the entire community on the stage and not leaving anyone behind. Many of these ideas form the basis of democracy and are what is needed in our constantly changing societies at this moment in time.«
