noBody completes a choreographic cycle of three pieces about humans and their bodies which Sasha Waltz created in the years around the turn of the millennium. In her piece “Körper“, she investigated the materiality of the human being, relating the dancers‘ bodies to architecture, science and history. “S” searched for the origin of life, explored eros and sensibility. In “noBody” the choreographer and 25 dancers take on the challenge of visualizing the non-material and the idea of the spiritual beyond the body, thus questioning the mystery of human existence and death.
“noBody” was last performed on a Berlin stage in September 2008 at the Schaubühne Berlin. The production was invited to te renowned Festival d’Avignon in 2002. 2012 the GöteborgsOperans Danskompani took the choreography into their repertoire. The filmic version of “noBody”, the third and last part of Sasha Waltz‘ famous “Körper” – Trilogy, was produced in 2000 by nachtaktivfilm, commissioned by ZDF/ARTE.
