Heterotopia

22–25/03/2012

A work by William Forsythe

Heterotopia is a meditation on the nature of translation and the failures that attend its efforts. The work transpires in two obscure topographies  of unarticulated desire. One, a raucous and supernatural oratorio, which is performed in incomprehensible yet intelligible languages, serves as a complementary orchestra to the other, a strange assembly of listening creatures, whose futile attempts to understand the perplexing music result in still stranger actions.

The debut performance take place on 25 October 2006 at Schauspielhaus Zürich.
