Sasha Waltz & Guests
A film by Bettina Borgfeld and Jochen Sandig
Followed by Q&A and After Party

The renowned German dance company Sasha Waltz & Guests celebrates its 25th anniversary with the US Premiere of the film version of Sasha Waltz' choreography "Kreatur" at the ACE Theatre in DTLA, co-presented by UCLA's Center for the Art of Performance. This will mark the closing night of German Currents Film Festival, a project of the Goethe-Institut Los Angeles.

For »Kreatur« Sasha Waltz, with her 14 dancers, examines the phenomena of existence against the background of a disrupted society: power and a lack of power, dominance and weakness, freedom and control, community and isolation. Since its 2017 world premiere in Berlin, the piece has toured nationally and internationally in Athens, Avignon, Barcelona, Bruxelles, Dijon, Essen, Lisbon, and Rome among others.

This evening is part of the Year of German-American Friendship 2018/19 - a comprehensive and collaborative initiative of the Federal Foreign Office, the Goethe-Institut, and with the support of the Federation of German Industries (BDI).
In cooperation with the Goethe-Institute Los Angeles as part of German Currents Film Festival; with the support of Villa Aurora & Thomas Mann House.
The film is a co-production by Sasha Waltz & Guests and the ZDF in cooperation with ARTE.
