William Forsythe (US) has galvanized the dance world with his brilliantly innovative thinking, catapulting him into the international spotlight with his dynamic approach to the art form. As a creator, Forsythe encapsulates a command of space and a masterful grasp on the history and development of ballet and dance that characterize each work he creates: “If dance only does what we assume it can do, it will expire. I keep trying to test the limits of what the word choreography means.” Woven State marks the renewal of a relationship with Forsythe in an evening that includes: the return of Of Any if And, last performed by NDT in 2005, N.N.N.N. (2002), and One Flat Thing, reproduced (2000). The evening is accompanied by music composed by Forsythe’s longtime collaborator Thom Willems.
