Choreography by William Forsythe

"Forsythe is the foremost choreographer today, and every performance in his oeuvre challenges space, movement and the logic of music. These are works of enduring and unforgettable force."
—BOMB Magazine

For three decades, choreographer William Forsythe has upended traditions and defied expectations, producing works of enduring power. Last at BAM with the politically daring Three Atmospheric Studies (2007 Spring Season), Forsythe returns with Decreation, a work that challenges our notions of dance in the 21st century and asserts his place as one of the world's most innovative choreographers. A piece on love, jealousy, and the soul, Decreation explores the forces that shape and rend our relationships-with one another and ourselves.
