The Returns

A work by William Forsythe
with music by Dietrich Krüger, Sebastian Rietz and Thom Willems

With a clairvoyant manicurist as guide and a lavishly costumed supporting cast of agents, 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.
