In C – Marler Partitur
In September 2022, the city of Marl in North Rhine-Westphalia itself became a stage and protagonist. The German choreographer Sasha Waltz with »In C – Marler Partitur« developed a special project that aimed to incorporate the town’s architecture and population. Over 100 non-professional dancers together with professional dancers from the region over months studied and rehearsed the choreographic figures of »In C« in different groups, which they then presented on various sites in the city, taking the audience with them and slowly spiraling to the center of the city, where the procession ended in a performance with all participants and dancers of the company Sasha Waltz & Guests.
The project was initiated by a group of citizens of Marl, that for years have been committed to the preservation of Marl’s extraordinary architecture. Through the network of the New Patrons they became the New Patrons of Marl and were able to engage the choreographer Sasha Waltz to develop a project, that used the means of dance to bring to life the cultural heritage of the city of Marl.
The Gesellschaft der Neuen Auftraggeber (New Patrons) provides the logistical infrastructure and supports citizens, artists, and cooperation partners in commissioning, financing, and realizing projects and new works of art. The fruits of these collaborative efforts are non-commercial, public, and non-profit cultural assets.
