Sasha Waltz is a German choreographer, dancer and leader of the company Sasha Waltz and Guests. She trained in Amsterdam and New York before becoming a professional dancer, collaborating intensely with choreographers, visual artists and musicians. From 1992 onwards she was an artist in residence in Kunstlerhaus Bethanien. There she developed a series of “dialogues” in interdisciplinary projects with dancers, musicians and visual artists. A year later in 1993, she founded her company “Sasha Waltz and Guests” with Jochen Sandig. Over the next 3 years they developed the Travelogue-Trilogy.Together with Jochen Sandig, they founded the Sophiensæle in central Berlin, as a center for the development of free theatre and dance. 

In 1999 she took over as Artistic Director at Schaubühne am Lehniner Platz in Berlin alongside Thomas Ostermeier, Jens Hillje and Jochen Sandig. Once her 5 year period with the Schaubühne finished she reactivitated Sasha Waltz & Guests as an independent company again, with a base in Berlin. It was established as an international project with 25 permanent and 40 associate collaborators.
