On 28 November 2023, the collaboration with MOVES has culminated in a

very special performance: For the first time the choreography »In C« by

Sasha Waltz to the music of the same name by Terry Riley was presented

in a mixed cast of dancers from Sasha Walz & Guests and from all

over Mexico at FORO FIL (Feria Internacional del Libro), the main stage

of the Guadalajara International Book Fair. The performance was part of

the programme of the European Union, which was the guest of honour at

FIL 2023. Six dancers from Sasha Waltz & Guests danced together with

six Mexican dancers from Tijuana, Mexico City, Guadalajara and Mérida

to live music directed by Sergio Ramírez Cárdenas.​
