Director of Dance Linda Caruso-Haviland moderated a symposium at the Pennsylvania Ballet on “Fold, Collapse, and Shift: Ballet and Beyond in the Choreography of William Forsythe” in May. She has also written a feature article on Forsythe’s dances, which was published on the ballet’s website.
From the website: “Like George Balanchine, whose work he greatly admires, William Forsythe changed forever the shape, dynamic, and possibilities of classical ballet and the ways in which we see it. This symposium will address what viewers found innovative, exciting, or infuriating in Forsythe’s earlier work and the qualities of his current work that continue to make him one of the more important and influential choreographers of our time.”
