Sadler’s Wells audiences last had the opportunity to see work by Forsythe in ENB’s Voices of America programme, which included the world premiere of Playlist (Track 1, 2), a work created especially for the company, which closed the programme and fairly brought the house down.
For A Quiet Evening of Dance at Sadler’s Wells Forsythe is in a meditative mood. Conceiving the programme of old and new works, prepare for an evening of chamber music with a narrow, less bombastic focus.
All highly cerebral, nonetheless. Seven of Forsythe’s most trusted collaborators will interpret works which, we’re promised, range from sparse analytic condensation to baroque inspired counterpoint.
At least one of the works, Catalogue (First Edition) will do without musical accompaniment altogether, the two dancers’ breathing marking the tempi of their intricate gestures.
Forsythe’s work is not for everyone; but those interested in going behind the surface and acquiring insights into how ballet really works won’t want to miss A Quiet Evening of Dance.
