What's On > Royal Ballet Flanders

Wed 25 - Thu 26 Apr 2012 (ARCHIVED LISTING)
It is difficult to imagine that William Forsythe created Artifact as long as 25 years ago and thereby changed the way in which we look at expression through dance forever.
 
Artifact is a full-evening show in four parts, and presents group scenes, solos and pas de deux to Johann Sebastian Bach’s Chaconne in D. Artifact combines an exceptional amount of text for a dance performance with an extensive repertoire of sign language and extremely formal pure-dance sections, and sometimes even wild combinations involving all of these. The magical effect of this groundbreaking opus is mainly created by the brilliant design of the lighting, also created by William Forsythe.
 
“Balletic heaven” NEW YORK TIMES
 
"Forsythe's choreography looks fabulous - grand design and exquisitely unpredictable detail" THE GUARDIAN
 
"Dancing of impeccable finish. No other mid-scale company achieves the trick with comparable panache" THE OBSERVER
