In June 2015 choreographer and regular PACT guest artist, Fabrice Mazliah, created a new work in collaboration with dancers of The Forsythe Company, which looks at how the understanding acquired by a community of dancers can be revealed to a public and simultaneously evolve towards something new. Recognizing that their actions are tangled with thoughts, but certainly not replaced by them, ›In Act and Thought‹ recomposes the performers’ working knowledge within an intricate machinery of shifting curtains. In search of a communal process of articulation, they explore how to combine movement with language –  becoming precise, expanding details into complex explanations, being in agreement, starting ideas together, and also being poetic. Actions elicit further actions. Reports recombine, forming ever changing acoustic textures.
