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.

lamenco is like an animated conversation. Singers, guitarists and dancers face off, bodies listening, instruments generating and responding to movement. At the end of an evening, the performers often move across the stage in a tight cluster, as if meaning to continue the discussion offstage.

Olga Smirnova, who has for over a decade been a star of the Bolshoi, the Russian company whose name is synonymous with ballet, has left.
In a move likely to shake up the ballet world, Ms. Smirnova, 30, on Wednesday announced that she had joined the Dutch National Ballet in Amsterdam, becoming one of the most significant Russian cultural figures to leave the country because of its invasion of Ukraine.
Ms. Smirnova, who since 2016 has been a principal soloist at the Bolshoi, said in a news release that she had been thinking about leaving for some time. “It’s just that the current circumstances accelerated this process.”
