Artifact Suite by choreographer William Forsythe features 29 dancers in choreography that pushes them beyond their perceived physical limits, demanding sharp timing, precise syncopation, and coordination. Each time Artifact Suite is performed by a new company, Forsythe makes changes to the choreography to keep the work fresh. Also on the program: Forgotten Land by Jiří Kylián, with music by Benjamin Britten, and a world premiere by resident choreographer Matthew Neenan to music by Felix Mendelssohn.
