'A vision of ballet for the 21st century…" — The San Francisco Chronicle on Artifact Suite
Celebrate the evolution of Pennsylvania Ballet's repertoire with Company premieres by two of today's most influential choreographers. Artifact Suite offers William Forsythe's singular brand of aggressive, angular movement. His daring interpretation of the ballet lexicon boasts lightening-quick rhythm, to-the-hilt extension, and unmatched precision. Equally kinetic yet strikingly soulful, Jiří Kylián's seamless, fluid vocabulary propels his somber Forgotten Land. New to our repertoire, Kylián found inspiration for this piece in a painting of water eroding the shore.
Artifact Suite has been supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage through Dance Advance.
