In anticipation of Francis Poulenc’s choral work “Figure Humaine”, Sasha Waltz and her acclaimed dance company inaugurated the Elbphilharmonie Foyers in Hamburg a few days before the official opening in early 2017. The choreographic and musical exploration of the new concert hall included music by Hildgegard von Bingen, Béla Bartók, György Ligeti, Dmitri Shostakovich, Xenakis and many others. More than 80 dancers and musicians and the Vocalconsort Berlin were involved.
