20 November, 17.00-19.00, Kunsthal Charlottenborg

Continuing Education is repeating its highly successful series ”Conversations about Performing Art,” which involve leading and influential artists sharing their expert perspective on contemporary performing arts and the role and opportunities of theatre.

This time in collaboration with Kunsthal Charlottenborg and The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts' Schools of Visual Arts in connection with the exhibition Forsythe – in Company with Others.

It’s a great honor to welcome the choreographer and artist William Forsythe in a conversation with Daniel Birnbaum, director of Moderna Museet, Stockholm. William Forsythe is known internationally for his work with the Ballet Frankfurt (1984–2004) and The Forsythe Company (2005–2015). Recognized for the integration of ballet and visual arts, his vision of choreography as an organizational practice has inspired him to produce numerous installations, films, and web based knowledge creation.
