William Forsythe: A Quiet Evening of Dance
About William Forsythe: A Quiet Evening of Dance
Groundbreaking choreographer William Forsythe presents a vivid combination of new and existing work, performed by seven of Forsythe’s most trusted collaborators. The intricate phrasing of the dancers’ breath is the primary sound accompanying Forsythe’s choreography, which draws on the geometric origins of classical ballet and ranges from sparse analytic condensation to baroque-inspired counterpoint. The result is a new production that, like an evening of chamber music, feels designed to be listened to. A Quiet Evening of Dance includes two newly commissioned works, Epilogue and Seventeen/Twenty-One; two reimagined repertory works, Dialogue (DUO2015) and Catalogue (Second Edition); and Prologue, an excerpt in Act One of Seventeen/Twenty One.
A Quiet Evening of Dance is a Sadler’s Wells London Production co-commissioned by The Shed; Théâtre de la Ville-Paris, Théâtre du Châtelet and Festival d’Automne à Paris; Festival Montpellier Danse 2019; Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg; Onassis Cultural Centre-Athens; and deSingel international arts campus (Antwerp). Winner of the FEDORA - VAN CLEEF & ARPELS Prize for Ballet 2018.
