4 minutes of beauty.

An intense Pas de deux danced to music by Gustav Mahler, Urlicht evokes our intrinsic need to return to the light of creation. This first ballet by William Forsythe was created in 1976, while he was dancing with the Stuttgart Ballet. Featuring Jason Reilly (if anyone recognizes the ballerina, please let me know).
