US PREMIERE

In C
Sasha Waltz & Guests
Bang on a Can All-Stars
Music by Terry Riley
Choreography by Sasha Waltz

 
Part of Spring 2022
Any kind of instrument. Any number of performers. Terry Riley’s one page score for In C invites interpretation in the extreme.

Choreographer Sasha Waltz takes up the challenge—and the open-ended possibilities—in this playful, expressive new work, accompanied live by the electric Bang on a Can All-Stars. Waltz builds on her interdisciplinary practice to create an adaptable movement system inspired by Riley’s score. Created through an experimental artistic process incorporating digital development and performance, In C explores the potential of flexible creative production in extreme circumstances and of artistic exchange, even across national borders. It comes to the BAM stage for its US premiere, offering a dazzling interplay of structured improvisation and synchronicity that, like Riley’s music, sweeps audiences up on a journey toward the ecstatic.

This performance is also presented as part of Bang on a Can’s three-day multi-venue Long Play new music festival.
