A work by William Forsythe
with music by Dietrich Krüger, Sebastian Rietz and Thom Willems
With a clairvoyant Asian manicurist as guide and a lavishly costumed supporting cast of agents, shamans, patrons, parrots and pirates, »The Returns« takes its audience on a rakish tour of art culture. Art as commodity and fetish; the artist as medium and charlatan, the art market as salon and playing field – Forsythe’s caustic, ribald Defilée of archetypes and attitudes grants its audience no quarter.
›Pulling a homage like this out of his hat while giving a dig to the ballet and linking it all to his own idiom – only an unwavering trailblazer like Forsythe can carry this off.‹
(Dorion Weickmann, Süddeutsche Zeitung)
