Impromptus
Sasha Waltz
Franz Schubert

World premiere
17 of April 2004, Schaubühne am Lehniner Platz Berlin.

For the first time Sasha Waltz develops a dance piece based on the structure of a classical music composition. The music will be performed live onstage together with vocal accompaniment of four »Schubert-Lieder«. The dance like the music create in a subtle way emotional states between weightless floating and being off balance. Sasha Waltz researches in her work the existential questions of the human body with its vulnerability and beauty. Dance at its most riveting, at once unmasking, manipulating, and ultimately exalting in the innumerable aspects that make us human.
