What if the ugly side of our society could be born into this world in flesh and bone? Fear, envy, and aggressiveness become living creatures that torture, kill and feed on all of us? This nightmarish vision is what you can expect from the new avant-garde dance piece Kreatur by acclaimed choreographer Sasha Waltz at Radialsystem.
The Berlin-based choreographer hasn’t show any new dance piece in Berlin for 12 years now and her comeback is highly anticipated but also critically observed. The reason: her future role as director of the Staatsballett Berlin which caused quite some controversy in the last year.
With Kreatur she definitely showed her critics what she is capable of. Showing transgression, darkness, pain without being obvious or superficial. Especially with the amazing costumes by iconic Dutch avant-garde designer Iris van Herpen Sasha Waltz evokes a turmoil of demons and sinners lost in a world of sterility and artificial light.
The first string of shows of Kreatur is completely sold out. But you can always try to get a ticket by going there on the nights they play and check into the waiting list. To give you a glimpse of what you can experience at the upcoming shows in December 2017 we made some photos and animated GIFs for you.
wow! very interesting. Captivating choice of costumes and props too.
Thank you for the nice blog post.

The photos and GIFs have been done by me, the founder of the blog.
