Performance

William Forsythe
A Quiet Evening of Dance

October 4–6, 2018
Sadler’s Wells, London
sadlerswells.com

For this fresh configuration of new and existing work, William 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. To attend the event, purchase tickets at sadlerswells.com.
