»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« searches for the origin of life, explores eros and sensibility. »noBody« deals with metaphysical levels to human existence. It addresses the absence of the body and confronts us with feelings aroused by our realisation of being mortal. What does being human mean beyond having a body? Which part of us is immortal? In »noBody«, the choreographer and 25 dancers face the challenge of visualizing the non-physical through the physical.
