      Co-programmed in partnership with South East Dance William Forsythe's choreographic object populates the old municipal market space with hundreds of delicate pendulums, swinging in timed sequences. As you move around without touching the pendulums, your strides and side-steps will produce a lively choreography of manifold and intricate avoidance strategies. Forsythe’s blend of choreography and artwork, in which you become the dancer, contrasts reactive spontaneity and pre-programmed precision. This is the latest reinvention of a piece that evolves in reaction to the space it occupies: a tribute to a great Brighton landmark destined to become a new Dance Space for the city. William Forsythe is hailed as one of the world’s most innovative choreographers, credited with moving the focus of dance from the classical tradition to a dynamic, 21st century artform. In recent years he has been exploring the notion of movement in its widest context, with a series of acclaimed installations, artworks and films. The Forsythe Company is supported by the city of Dresden and the state of Saxony as well as the city of Frankfurt am Main and the state of Hesse. The Forsythe Company is Company-in-Residence of both HELLERAU – European Center for the Arts in Dresden and the Bockenheimer Depot in Frankfurt am Main. With special thanks to the ALTANA Kulturstiftung for supporting The Forsythe Company.

                  Video impression: A snippet from BOTH SITTING DUET by Jonathan Burrows & Matteo Fargion. In the TALK after the show Jonathan Burrows gives an insight of what is to be celebrated to fact "that the mind is split from the body". Burrows and Fargion describe what they do as "handmade and small format". Although they work with unspectacular elements they often achieve deceptive virtuosity, something that radiates joy just because it stimulates the audience to think. Over the past ten years the two artists have built up a work made of duets which juxtaposes the formality of musical composition with a radical and open approach to performance and the audience. These duets form the basis for one of Motion Bank’s digital online score projects was offering the audience in Frankfurt a unique opportunity to see a retrospective of their work. This was the third performance in the Motion Bank’s guest performance series.

                    MOTION BANK WORKSHOP NO.3 MEDIATING RELATIONS 14-17 February 2012 at The Frankfurt LAB. This third workshop in the series offered an opportunity to engage into the development of scores through encounters in the space between sound and motion composition. This workshop was conducted by choreographer Isabelle Schad and the Frankfurt based composer Robin Hoffmann under the "Score Meditations: On the body becoming music". It was the aim of Motion Bank to offer opportunities to the invited workshop artists to try out new ideas for teaching or leading workshops. In this case, it was the first time Schad, whose work is influenced by somatic practices like Body-Mind Centering and Embryology, had met and worked together with the body percussionist Robin Hoffmann. Together with the participants, they explored the deep awareness of the body in movement connecting to musical ideas, structures and writings. A score was executed and performed – with the emphasis on each individual body-mind state. See the video impression below for reflections and to see some elements of the process.
