White Darkness – Making-of (1)

»The Second Detail« by William Forsythe

The triple bill »White Darkness« opens with »The Second Detail« by William Forsythe, one of the most important contemporary choreographers and founder of The Forsythe Company. This piece, which premiered in Canada in 1991, is already considered a modern classic. Drawing on the paradigms of classical ballet, Forsythe is also influenced by the language of neo-classical and expressive dance in a thrilling work that culminates with an ironic twist. The sensuality of this synaesthetic masterpiece is heightened by the female soloist’s costume, created by star designer Issey Miyake, as well as the specially arranged score by Dutch composer and electronic music specialist Thom Willems.

Premiere 3. June 2023
