William Forsythe

William Forsythe is one of the most interesting artists on the planet. Bar none.

More from Sadler's Wells.

Thom Willems does the music as usual.



This is an earlier piece...the Houston Ballet.

I posted this some time back with different dancers, from the Sadler's Wells production.

Feroce.

One senses this piece is exactly what Nijinsky would be choregraphing in the 21st century.



From "The Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude"...







"Enemy in the Figure"...





Another production of "in the middle, somewhat elevated"...this one from Greece, I believe...as you can see these performers lack the scissor-like savagery that the other performers have...which seems right, because it matches the music's savagery perfectly...one of the best pas de deux composed in my lifetime I have seen...when performed as ABOVE....here the Greek perfomers go all mou...yuck...



Ballet Dortmund..."In the Mood"...diverse choreographers...



"self meant to govern"...Frankfurt Ballet...
