William Forsythe has tested the possibilities of choreography for the past three decades, pulling ballet from its traditional past and pushing it into an innovative present and future. He is renowned for diverting from the classical vocabulary to create breath-taking works of art. From October 7-10, Forsythe brings Decreation, a work exploring the love, hate, fears and desires that plague human relationships, to BAM. Through movement, dialogue and multimedia interaction, Forsythe challenges bodies and minds. Decreation is an insightful, provactive work that raises questions of joy and terror, trust and deceit. A convergence of art forms, Decreation brings the world of dance to a place of new depths and possibilities, proving that William Forsythe remains one of the greatest minds of 21st century dance.
