Jone San Martin, William Forsythe


b 12 Festival | DOCK 11

Production Details / Press Releases

legítimo/rezo is in two parts – a stunning solo created by Jone San Martin and William Forsythe and a conversation through dance on the unique process of choreographic creation by william forsythe with his dancers.
Jone San Martín, who has worked with William Forsythe since 1992, immerses us in the creative process behind Forsythe’s choreography. Her body becomes a mediator between choreographic writing and interpretation, between guidelines and free improvisation.

In defining the way William Forsythe works, she turns to Lawrence Durrell: “Truth disappears with the telling of it. It can only be conveyed, not stated.” (Clea, The Alexandria Quartet).
