University of Southern California’s Glorya Kaufman School of Dance (USC Kaufman), The Music Center, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) present Fall for Forsythe, a month-long celebration of the work of American-born and internationally recognized choreographer William Forsythe, whose multiplatform dances transcend tradition.  The public can attend a number of free and ticketed events and performances ranging from dance performances by students and professional dancers, to lectures and a costume display.

Fall for Forsythe launches on Sept. 29, 2016 with “Focus Forsythe: The Choreographer’s Process,” a showing and lecture co-presented by USC Visions and Voices and USC Kaufman at the newly constructed Glorya Kaufman International Dance Center on the USC campus.  Starting on Oct. 1, 2016, The Music Center will present “Forsythe Designed:  A Costume Exhibition,” featuring costumes from a number of Forsythe’s dance works at locations around the Southland, including The Music Center’s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.  “Site-Specific Forsythe,” performances of Forsythe’s work performed by Riley Watts, Rauf“Rubberlegz”Yasit, and students from the USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance, will take place at LACMA Oct. 15-16, 2016.  The celebration will culminate at The Music Center on Oct. 21-23, 2016 with “Celebrate Forsythe” featuring performances by Houston Ballet, San Francisco Ballet and Pacific Northwest Ballet.
