»In C« is a dance piece by the contemporary Berlin dance company Sasha Waltz & Guests from 2021. The choreography was developed by the German choreographer Sasha Waltz and is based on the piece of music of the same name (Minimal Music) by the American composer Terry Riley from 1964. The music consists of 53 musical figures that are played by an indefinite number of musicians according to certain rules. Analogously, Sasha Waltz has developed 53 choreographic figures as well as further rules for how these figures can be danced together in space. Here, too, the number of dancers is undetermined.

It is a so-called "structured improvisation". Central to "In C" is the group experience: dancing the figures together in space and experiencing oneself as an individual in the group. "In C" is therefore also a lived democratic practice.

The choreographic material was recorded in video tutorials that can be made digitally accessible and learned.
