See what the buzz is about

Experience a highly anticipated program from prolific choreographer William Forsythe, whose vision is brought to life by powerhouse dancers and a hypnotic soundtrack.

Forsythe’s reimagined Artifact Suite showcases the athleticism and musicality of the dancers, with large ensemble sections that sweep you off your feet and transport you to another dimension of the dance world. Then, Approximate Sonata flips classical dance vocabulary on its head with a series of contrasting duets that surprise and delight, each sequence more daring than the last. He rounds out the program with a brand-new work created exclusively for Boston audiences that you’ll have to see to believe.

Renowned for his playful and inventive choreography, Forsythe continues to push the boundaries of the artform and reimagine what’s possible. This program encapsulates the cutting-edge artistry that Boston has come to expect from Forsythe, and introduces new audiences to his revelatory style.
