Sasha Waltz's 'In C'

Sasha Waltz’s ‘In C’ Marries Choreography and Improvisation

Waltz’s dance, born in deep lockdown, embraces the openness and fluidity of Terry Riley’s classic minimalist score. It’s coming to BAM.

“I started in the deep lockdown,” said the German choreographer Sasha Waltz. “Everything was closed. And it was in the winter. It was gray and everybody was depressed. And we said, we have to keep working. We cannot go on like this.”


Waltz, 59, was talking about “In C,” a dance she choreographed during the pandemic with her Berlin troupe, Sasha Waltz and Guests. The hourlong work, set to Terry Riley’s 1964 composition — a milestone of minimal music — will be performed Thursday through Saturday at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, where Waltz and company performed frequently before the pandemic.
