Forsythe Tops Dance Fest Offerings

Montreal’s annual Festival International de Nouvelle Danse is a massive showcase for dance. “Just consider the numbers: 22 companies, 25 choreographers and 250 dance artists, not to mention 200 Canadian and foreign critics, journalists and producers eavesdropping on the more than 60 shows in 17 different locations throughout the city.” And what stood out? William Forsythe’s Ballett Frankfurt, which just points out the absurdity of this company’s imminent demise.
