Welcome to 'Woven State'
Welcome! NDT is pleased to present a trio of works by William Forsythe (1949).
These three works were chosen to provide examples of the range of Forsythe’s compositional craft, with a focus on self-governing, acapella structures. The program beautifully highlights Forsythe’s decade long engagement with counterpoint, while providing insight into the choreographer’s capacity to formally extend the structures underpinning classical ballet.
This evening would not be possible without the generous commitment of many individuals. I would like to extend a very special thanks to Bill for his care and remarkable artistic inspiration, to Thom Willems and all our collaborators for their passion and dedication that moved us through the learning and embodiment of the works, and to our NDT dancers and team for their incredible hard work and curiosity.
Thank you for joining, it is a pleasure to have you with us!
