about


"Choreography is a language. […] The most important thing is how you speak with the language, not what you say."

William Forsythe

The evening continues with two ballets by William Forsythe. 15 to play with the weight and balance of three dancers, the second prefers to explore movement with Thom Willems' electronic music to bring out what is most often invisible.
