exploring art and design, one day at a time

William Forsythe Choreographic Objects

I first became aware of William Forsythe for his choreography for San Francisco Ballet. I was an in-house graphic designer and became very intimate with the choreographers, dancers, and costumes—names and imagery. Forsythe is also well known for his Choreographic Objects installations in which he will fill a room with balloons for people to interact or hang swinging pendulums while people dance through them to the other side of the room. I love the interaction and the forced movement of the participant, no matter how fluid or stiff you are, you are dancing. Of course he creates his own choreographic work, seen first. Check out the videos here.
