A work by William Forsythe and The Forsythe Company with music by Thom Willems

The rhythmical inflections of Elizabethan theater, like those of classical dance, have been sustained by a tradition of transmission from performer to performer for over 400 years. In »Sider«, these intricate patterns  of speech are communicated to the performers via the soundtrack of a filmed version of a late 16th century tragedy. The adherence of the performers actions to this vocal score instigates disquieting configurations of incongruous musicality that underscore the dramas themes of analogy and obscuration.
