William Forsythe galvanized the dance world with brilliant, innovative thinking, catapulting him into the international spotlight with his dynamic 21st century approach to the art form. workwithinwork is a superb example of his iconic style, using craft and imagination to explore the limits of dance by allowing the body to interpret space with sophistication and curiosity.

In this World Premiere, Walter Matteini works with the play between the light and dark sides of human nature, “near the border where everything takes a new form.

He has worked with many international companies, including Aterballetto, National Ballet of Marseille, Monte Carlo Ballet and the Lyon Opera Ballet. Choreography: Walter Matteini.
