William Forsythe

William Forsythe, born in New York City in 1949, joined the Stuttgart Ballet as a dancer in 1973, and later began choreographing works for the company. Over the next years he made numerous ballets also for other leading companies, including the Basel Ballet, Munich Ballet, the German Opera Ballet in Berlin, the Joffrey Ballet, and Netherlands Dance Theatre. In 1984 Forsythe became artistic director of Ballett Frankfurt; in January 1999 he became director of both Ballett Frankfurt and TAT. With his new company, he set out to create works which were removed from conventional ballet and to build a new audience. Forsythe's key works over the last 20 years include “Gänge” (1982), “Artifact” (1984), “Impressing the Czar” (1988), “Limb's Theorem” (1991), “The Loss of Small Detail” (1991), “A L I E/N A(C)TION “(1992), “Eidos:Telos” (1995), “Endless House” (1999) and “Kammer/Kammer” (2000).

After the closure of the Ballett Frankfurt at the end of the 2003/2004 season, Forsythe established his own private company. The Forsythe Company will divide its time between its two artistic homes Dresden and Frankfurt am Main.
