Berlin based company Sasha Waltz & Guests, present the UK premiere of a Sadler’s Wells Co-production, Sasha Waltz’s Continu.

Berlin based company Sasha Waltz & Guests, which is known for its innovative choreographic musical theatre performances, present the UK premiere of a Sadler’s Wells Co-production, Sasha Waltz’s Continu.  This full length dance performance which has been a decade in the making, consolidates many of the key elements of Waltz’s work from the past ten years, and takes particular inspiration from two major museum-based projects she created in 2009: the artistic inaugurations for David Chipperfield’s Neues Museum in Berlin, and Zaha Hadid’s MAXXI in Rome.

Created for 24 dancers and premiered in 2010, Continu is set to a contemporary symphonic score, featuring Arcana, written in 1927 by visionary French avant-gardecomposer Edgar Varèse.  Featuring costume design by Bernd Skodzig, scenography by regular collaborators Thomas Schenk and Pia Maier Schriever and lighting by Martin Hauk, Continu is also set to music by Iannis Xenakis and Claude Vivier, composers who, like Varèse, were inspired by scientific and mathematical philosophies.
