Filming Sasha Waltz (Dir. Brigitte Kramer)
A special screening of two films on Germany’s most distinguished contemporary choreographer, introduced by director Brigitte Kramer.
Sasha Waltz – A Portrait (60 mins, 2014, in English) gives an intimate insight into Waltz’s outstanding body of work. Famous for her inventive productions and stunning aesthetic, she has developed a whole new genre: the choreographic opera. Kramer presents the defining moments of Waltz’s career since 2006.
Körper (59 mins, 2000, with English subtitles) focuses on the human body. In this legendary production, beautifully filmed by Brigitte Kramer, Waltz relates the movement of the body to the bare architecture of the performance space. What is the body? How is it constructed and how is it manipulated?
