Two distinguished companies, the Ensemble Modern and Sasha Waltz & Guests, joined forces to work on Wolfgang Rihm's »Jagden und Formen« (Zustand 2008). This project ultimately succeeded in creating a unique combination of new music and contemporary dance, and in sensuously expressing the composer's deep affinity for dance. Following an encounter with the choreographer, Wolfgang Rihm reworked the score of »Jagden und Formen«, which has constantly gone through new phases since the mid-90s, into the current »Zustand 2008«. This formed the basis of an intensive dialogue between the companies, which is to be continued in the future. Rihm's complex, high-energy music, which appears to take on various physical forms and aggregate states and to describe basic physical conditions, finds its response in the choreography of the dancers and the musicians.
