This four-work programme is a unique opportunity to discover the versatility of dance innovator William Forsythe.
Smart, unpredictable, virtuosic: works by dance grand master William Forsythe.
William Forsythe is undoubtedly one of the foremost choreographers of his generation. For this unusual configuration of new and existing work, Forsythe has imagined something akin to an evening of chamber music, designed to be listened to.
The works range from sparse analytic condensation to baroque inspired counterpoint. The intricate phrasing of the dancers’ breath is the primary accompaniment for a distillation of the geometric origins of classical ballet.
The evening is performed by seven of Forsythe’s most trusted collaborators, who promise to provide insight into the workings of ballet and the mind of the man who has dedicated his work to this task. The programme includes two new pieces, Epilogue and Seventeen/Twenty One; two reimagined repertory works, Dialogue (DUO2015) and Catalogue (Second Edition), as well as Prologue, an excerpt of Seventeen/Twenty One.
