Catalogue (First Edition) von William Forsythe

Location: Frankfurt LAB, Schmidtstraße 12 (Gallus)


By invitation of the DANCE ON ENSEMBLE, William Forsythe developed the duo Catalogue (First Edition) for Christopher Roman and Jill Johnson, who were important performers of his works for many years. The starting point for the piece was their special relationship and the wealth of bodily knowledge that Roman and Johnson carry in them after many years of collaboration. In recourse to Forsythe’s famous piece Duo, the three of them developed Catalogue, a new baroque duet, simultaneously powerful and sensual. As part of the Hollins University’s summer programme, Brit Rodemund will be dancing the piece with Christopher Roman. She contributed from the start to the development process of Catalogue. In a talk following the twenty-minute performance, Rodemund and Roman will speak about their work with Forsythe and the DANCE ON ENSEMBLE.
