Co-presented by Goethe-Institut Australia, Critical Path and Sydney Festival, this Artists’ Salon will bring together Sasha Waltz in conversation with Nadia Cusimano, facilitated by Martin del Amo.
Nadia and Sasha will trace Sasha’s early biography and artistic development in relation to these projects, and in relation to the changing disciplines, people and places that have led her to recent opera and large-scale dance works.
Nadia Cusimano studied dance and choreography at the EDDC in Holland, and from 1996 till 2002 created projects with Sasha Waltz & Guests. In 2009 she returned to work with Sasha on the opening of the MAXXI Museum of the 21st Century in Rome. She continues to work as a performer and dramaturg on projects in Australia and overseas.
Sasha Waltz studied dance and choreography in Amsterdam and New York. With Jochen Sandig, she co-founded the company Sasha Waltz & Guests (1993) and the Sophiensaele (1996).
