Did William Forsythe Invent The Modern Ballerina?Interview with William Forsythe
Posted 16 October 2009 - 12:23 PM
Can someone name a ballet work Forsythe's done since the Forsythe rep program for Paris in '99? (Woundwork and pas/parts)
It's not as if works such as Artifact and Czar weren't great and that's I think why we do hold on to them, but that's not what he's doing - and we have to ignore his current output to discuss him in a balletic light.

If Forsythe isn't worthy, let's hear about the real frontier of balletic choreography.

(There's a very nice DVD about Doubrovska by Virginia Brooks, available from her web site. http://www.brooksdan.../Doubrovska.asp )

WF: I think Balanchine did that, but it’s true that in my work, both the man and the woman have equal say in the dynamics or contributions to a pas de deux or any action that they shared. In In the Middle, for example, they are testing the limits of their cooperation as much as anything. It’s not just about support; it’s about enabling something that couldn’t happen alone. Those off-balance moves of the pas de deux couldn’t be sustained without the entirety of their physique – it’s a complex physical construction.
