Alternate Title Körper (Bodies)
Premiere New York Premiere
Country of Origin Germany
Description Körper engages twelve dancers in a particularly rich variety of movement. Linking architecture and body, Körper asks the questions: What is the body? How is it constructed? The dance analyzes morality, the quest for immortality, and investigates reproduction in the age of genetic manipulation.
Sasha Waltz looks at the bodies in everyday situations. She observes their matter, their nudity, their rhythms. She measures and weighs them, counts hair, pours the liquids out, trades the organs. She arranges the bodies of thirteen dancers in order to create a series of spectacular tableaux vivants.
