Opening Weekend

At the opening weekend of the exhibition "Sasha Waltz. Installations Objects Performances", the Compagnie Sasha Waltz & Guests presents a three-day performance program. From Wednesday October 2, 2013, selected dancers will show Sasha Waltz’s performances in the exhibition space that were developed in a workshop − for four days a week for the entire duration of the exhibition. A comprehensive performance parcours invites visitors to experience the exhibited installations and objects, but also the exhibition space and the architecture of the ZKM | Karlsruhe, accompanied, commented and interpreted by numerous performances by the Compagnie Sasha Waltz & Guests. We recommend visitors to wear comfortable footwear for the performance parcours lasting several hours. For the exhibition finissage on February 1 and 2, 2014, the Compagnie Sasha Waltz & Guests are scheduled to return to Karlsruhe once again to play at the ZKM | Media Museum with a two-day performance program.

The exhibition is accompanied by a comprehensive accompanying program with guides and workshops for children, youth and adults. In addition, dance workshops will be offered for children, adults and dancers, among others with Susan Klein (New York), as well as by the directors of the child dance company by Sasha Waltz & Guests. The detailed program is scheduled to be published in conjunction with the exhibition opening and will be continuously updated.
