William Forsythe

Three Atmospheric Studies


    • Chaillot - Théâtre national de la Danse
      October 4 to October 7
    Seeing a crucifixion painted by Lucas Cranach, Forsythe drew a parallel with current events in the latter-day Middle-East. Mingling dance, theater and opera of sorts, this triptych follows a hopeless mother trying to understand why her son has disappeared, and borrows its pervasive energy from the conflicts it depicts. No doubt it is the choreographer’s most politically committed work to date.
