The Royal Ballet of Flanders has for more than 30 years been the flagship of classical ballet in Flanders, and now enjoys the distinction of being the only classical dance company in Belgium. Artifact was the first ballet that William Forsythe created after becoming director of the Frankfurt Ballet in 1984. It has been described as "a masterpiece" and "a work that definitively shows Forsythe as the most influential practitioner of the art form since Balanchine" (New York Times). Nearly 30 years after its premiere, Sadler's Wells is proud to present this seminal piece performed by one of Europe's most respected dance companies, Royal Ballet of Flanders. A ballet in four parts, Artifact features music by J.S. Bach and scenography, lighting, costumes and choreography all by William Forsythe. It is famous for the way it subverts the traditional physical principles of ballet and plays with audiences ideas about what ballet can be. Running time: 1hr 49mins (including one 20min interval) Royal Ballet of Flanders - Artifact website
