Legendary choreographer William Forsythe will join Pacific Northwest Ballet on stage for a rare lecture-demonstration on the eve of the first American program devoted entirely to his work. The evening will feature a candid interview of Mr. Forsythe by Peter Boal, a peek behind the curtain to watch Mr. Forsythe working with PNB dancers, and an opportunity for audience members to ask questions. William Forsythe’s career focused primarily in Germany with Ballet Frankfurt, and now has just been named associate choreographer at Paris Opera Ballet. PNB will perform two Forsythe PNB premieres: New Suite and The Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude, along with the return of In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated. PNB has been performing Forsythe work since the 1998 Company premiere of Artifact II. This is Mr. Forsythe’s first visit to PNB to work directly with PNB dancers, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome this groundbreaking artist to our studios.
