Last Night's Dream
Three Atmospheric Studies is very theatre, quite minimal on pure dance except for the first segment, and visually stunning as only Forsythe can do. What eyes he has. What a vision: the angles and intersections, and the dancers knowing their corners and facings, all so right and perfect and executed with clarity. The punctuation of physical geometry. And then the colors--khaki and drab and primary Crayola colorbox--and the lights--sterile interrogative fluorescents and the soothing ellipses (a low natural stage glow) into the beginning of each Part. This was the dream of last night.
