William Forsythe: Choreographic Objects
This book was published on the occasion of the exhibition William Forsythe: Choreographic Objects at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston. Since the 1990s, parallel to his stage productions, Forsythe has developed what he calls Choreographic Objects—works that blur the lines between performance, sculpture, and installation, and invite the viewer to engage with the fundamental ideas of choreography.
This volume considers the breadth of his oeuvre and features contributions from leading scholars, critics, and theorists in the disciplines of visual arts, choreography, and dance. Forsythe’s highly engaging voice shines through in his own writing, which enriches and deepens the scholarly essays in the book. In addition, the publication features an illustrated chronology of the Forsythe Company (2005–15), the artist’s dance troupe that followed his legendary tenure at Ballett Frankfurt.
