Nowhere and Everywhere at the Same Time: A Choreographic Work by William Forsythe

Brock Labrenz of the Forsythe Dance Company performs Nowhere and Everywhere at the Same Time in Rand Hall.

Nowhere and everywhere at the same time is how blind French resistance fighter Jacques Lusseyran, described the internal mental space where he envisioned forms and ideas. In equal measure, this phrase can also refer to the omnipresent field of gravity. In the cavernous space of the empty a group of performers orient themselves amidst a profusion of hanging pendulums, exploring the kinetic and metaphoric potentials of both of these multivalent landscapes. Their persistent inquiry results in interpretations both personal and scientific, crazed, and categorical. To be performed by Brock Labrenz.

Performances take place from 3–7 p.m.* on:

  • Saturday, March 3
  • Monday, March 5
