#35 William Forsythe (c) Dorothea Tuch

Undoubtedly one of the foremost choreographers of his generation, William Forsythe returns to the Grand Théâtre with an evening combining both new and existing work. Forsythe has imagined something akin to an evening of chamber music, designed to be listened to. The four 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. In DUO2015, the dancers register time in a spiraling way, make it visible, thinking how it fits into space, they pull time into an intricate, naked pattern that unfolds as they tumble, shear, strike, reverse.

An “intricate, almost baroque piece” – this is how the celebrated choreographer himself described Catalogue (First Edition). The richness of the bodily knowledge shared between Jill Johnson and Christopher Roman, both former Forsythe dancers, and Brit Rodemund, is part of the rich fabric of this piece. Completing the programme will be two new works, which will have their world premiere at Sadler’s Wells, London in October 2018.

The evening is performed by 7 of Forsythe’s most trusted collaborators who promise to provide insight into the workings of ballet and the mind of the man who dedicated his life to the task.
