Celebrated choreographer William Forsythe has been expanding the boundaries of dance for over four decades and beginning in 1989, he began work on his "choreographic objects," a series of sculptural installations. These physical, object-based extensions of his choreographic practice have become an integral aspect of his work. On view now at Gagosian Le Bourget in Paris, the exhibition William Forsythe: Choreographic Objects continues this experimentation with three works: Black Flags, Alignigung 2, and Towards the Diagnostic Gaze (Paris). For the occasion, filmmaker Ulrike Stumpp created a video documenting these works. The video also includes an in-depth interview with Forsythe on the concepts and techniques underlying the exhibition.
