1 mat + 3 mikes with stand + 9 piles + 15 dancers = ‘Yes – We can’t’
Choreograph William Forsythe provoked an imaginary voyage of ill communication in me when I saw his new performance ‘Yes – We can’t’. In this episode I will send you my reactions to the performance.
As well I will show some interferences between architecture and dance – still in his understanding.
For me he is a creator of modern ballett or maybe better a translator of ballett’s essence from antique to modern world.
