Solo by William Forsythe

Demonstrations by various dancers

In the published DVD there is an animated timeline accompanying each of the demonstrations, indicating which of Forsythe’s concepts is being illustrated. Each concept is hyperlinked to another video where Forsythe himself, with the aid of superimposed 3D markers, demonstrates and explains his approach. The video was originally developed as a training tool for new members of Ballet Frankfurt.
