Sasha Waltz & Guests works within an international and national, ever-evolving network of production and guest performance partners and has performed at over 300 international performance venues and festivals in over 50 countries and 180 cities since its inception. From its current repertoire of 12 active productions, the company presents approximately 80 performances per year. In Berlin, the company cooperates with a wide range of institutions such as municipal theaters, opera houses and museums and has contributed to the founding of new cultural institutions (Sophiensæle 1996, St. Elisabeth Church 2004, Radialsystem 2006). In 2013 the company was appointed "Cultural Ambassador of the European Union". In 2014 the Fonds Darstellende Künste honored Sasha Waltz & Guests with the "george tabori ehrenpreis". In addition to the Berlin performance, national and international guest performances and repertoire maintenance, Sasha Waltz & Guests is also very active in the field of "Education & Community" - starting with the children's dance company founded in 2007, the platform "ZUHÖREN - Dritter Raum für Kunst und Politik" (Listening - Third Space for Art and Politics), which has been active since 2016, and various offers in the field of knowledge transfer. With the work "In C", based on Terry Riley's open composition of the same name, a system of its own with an internationally growing community has been developing since spring 2021: the choreographic material was recorded in video tutorials to enable easy knowledge transfer . As a result, participatory, diverse, international and sustainable "In C" projects, workshop formats and ever new structures have emerged and continue to emerge worldwide.
