Description

A masterful “chamber” programme by William Forsythe, in which he puts beside some existing pieces with two new pieces, A Quiet Evening of Dance is built upon the lessons of the geometry of academic ballet and of Baroque counterpoint in its dynamic and musical choices. Seven of Forsythe’s most trusted collaborators give life, with the special talent they share, to the visions and distilled knowledge of the choreo-artist from New York.
