Born in 1963 in Germany, Sasha Waltz dances in Amsterdam and New York before creating her first great choreographic work in 1992: Dialoge. One year later, in 1993, she founds her own company in Berlin, Sasha Waltz & Guests. From this moment on, Sasha Waltz would create some of the most inspiring choreographies, notably her Romeo and Juliet on the score by Berlioz, for the Paris Opera House in 2002. Sasha Waltz is now internationally renowned and recognized as one of the most important choreographers of our time.
This filmed portrait of the choreographer Sasha Waltz depicts the progress of her work between 1992 and 2007, describing her exhilarating course through from the early choreographies to her large opera productions. An appreciation for Contemporary Dance and an insight into the life and work of the choreographer are conveyed filmically and entertainingly.
