Overview

Ballet Frankfurt Artistic Director and Choreographer William Forsythe is profiled in this release that offers a stage collaboration with Dana Caspersen and an interview with acclaimed filmmaker Mike Figgis. A lifelong dance enthusiast whose collaborative works frequently blur the line between choreographer and dancer, Forsythe pursuit of proprioperception, counterpoint, and entrainment are driven by a passionate appreciation of classical dance. But this isn't your typical classical dance, because Forsythe is perpetually striving to transform and revitalize the status quo. Few dancers can truly claim to challenge the hierarchy, authorship, and disciplinary boundaries in a manner that could truly transform the public's perception of the art form, but then again Forsythe is far from your typical classical dancer.
