William Forsythe is undoubtedly one of the foremost choreographers of his generation. Performed by seven of his most trusted collaborators, 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.
