William Forsythe - A Quiet Evening of Dance


11 and 12 May, Dansens Hus: Meet one of the world's foremost choreographers

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 last of the works also features Rauf ‘RubberLegz’ Yasit: a sensational, self-taught dancer with a style that completely transcends classification.
