Sasha Waltz is one of Europe's best-known and most exciting choreographers. Her choreographies are outstanding as she always surprises with new formations, deep subjects and stunning aesthetic style. But she does not only work with dancers:  the dialogue with all other art forms is her special interest. Live music has become an important element in her work. With her production of 'Dido & Aeneas' in 2005 she developed a new genre: the choreographic opera. Her spectrum is broad: Purcell, Berlioz and Stravinsky, contemporary classical music and opera have become her favourite working fields. She worked twice with French contemporary composer Pascal Dusapin in 'Medea' and 'Passion', and with Japanese composer Toshio Hosokawa for 'Matsukaze'.  All these deep and beautifully choreographed pieces are featured in this film when Sasha Waltz gives us insight to her work. The film portrait by Brigitte Kramer draws a line from 2005 until today, the most important years of Sasha Waltz' international career.
