Forsythe's departure from the company marks the end of an era and Ballett Frankfurt's Kennedy Center appearance, June 17-19, is its last U.S. engagement with him at the helm. The company will perform four Forsythe signature works that "demand mind-boggling flexibility, speed and quick thinking from a communal group of energetic dancers" (The New York Times): The room as it was, an eight-dancer work of a series of encounters, all featuring a common group of movements; Duo, an intimate two-woman work portraying a clock, registering time in an intricate pattern; (N.N.N.N.), a one-act work of flinging arms and folding joints for four dancers; and One Flat Thing, reproduced, a work that begins with a mighty roar of twenty metal tables dragged across the stage, harkening to Forsythe's concepts of contrasting order and disorder.
