Art at BRIGHTON FESTIVAL: William Forsythe – Nowhere and Everywhere At the Same Time No. 2 ** 3-25 May 2014 ** Old Municipal Market, Circus Street, Brighton

William Forsythe’s choreographic object populates the Old Municipal Market space with hundreds of delicate pendulums, swinging in timed sequences. As you move around without touching the pendulums, your strides and side-steps will produce a lively choreography of manifold and intricate avoidance strategies.

Forsythe’s blend of choreography and artwork, in which you become the dancer, contrasts reactive spontaneity and pre-programmed precision. This is the latest reinvention of a piece that evolves in reaction to the space it occupies: a tribute to a great Brighton landmark destined to become a new Dance Space for the city.

William Forsythe is hailed as one of the world’s most innovative choreographers, credited with moving the focus of dance from the classical tradition to a dynamic, 21st century artform. In recent years he has been exploring the notion of movement in its widest context, with a series of acclaimed installations, artworks and films.

The Forsythe Company is supported by the city of Dresden and the state of Saxony as well as the city of Frankfurt am Main and the state of Hesse. The Forsythe Company is Company-in-Residence of both HELLERAU – European Center for the Arts in Dresden and the Bockenheimer Depot in Frankfurt am Main. With special thanks to the ALTANA Kulturstiftung for supporting The Forsythe Company.

Supported by the Aisbitt Family
