Goethe Institut Hanoi will hold a free screening of Avenue of Cosmonauts, a dance film directed and choreographed by Sasha Waltz, on September 6.
Avenue of Cosmonauts is a world-famous dance film, which features a portrait of a family living in a cramped East Berlin apartment.
Sasha Waltz’s artistic works have won many national and international awards. In March 2011, she won the German Federal Cross of Merit for her contribution. Sasha Waltz began dance lessons when she was a child, and is considered a major innovator of dance theater.
After her dancing study in Germany, she completed dance studies in Amsterdam and New Work. In 1993, Waltz founded the dance company Sasha Waltz & Guests in Berlin with her husband, Jochen Sandig.
Goethe Institut Hanoi is located at 56-58 Nguyen Thai Hoc Street, Ba Dinh District, Hanoi.
