William Forsythe (Choreography)

WILLIAM FORSYTHE was born in New York in 1949, and studied dance at the University of Jacksonville in Florida and later at the Joffrey Ballet School in New York. He began his dance career with the Joffrey Ballet before he moved to Europe in 1973, joining the Stuttgarter Ballett, first as a dancer and later (1976-1981) as a choreographer.

In 1976, Forsythe staged his first ballet - Urlicht - a duet to music by Mahler, which was a resounding success for the choreographer. Forsythe began to create works for the Stuttgarter Ballett, the Basel Ballet, the Bayerisches Staatsballett, the ballet company of the Deutsche Oper in Berlin, the Joffrey Ballet and the Nederlands Dans Theater.

A defining moment in Forsythes creative life came with his collaboration (at the invitation of Rudolf Nureyev) with the ballet company of the Opra de Paris, where he staged his famous In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated for rising star Sylvie Guillem.

In 1984, Forsythe was appointed Artistic Director of the Frankfurter Ballett. The twenty years his career has spun have seen the creation of such important works as Gänge (1982), Artifact (1984), Impressing the Czar (1988), Limbs Theorem (1991), The Loss of Small Detail (1991), Eidos:Telos (1995), Endless House (1999) and Kammer/Kammer (2000).

Forsythes ballets are in the repertoires of the worlds leading dance companies, among them the New York City Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, the National Ballet of Canada, Londons Royal Ballet and the ballet company of the Opera de Paris.
