Rauf›Rubberlegz‹Yasit / Brigel Gjoka (2019) 

To mark a new commissioned piece of choreography by Rauf›RubberLegz‹-Yasit and Brigel Gjoka, William Forsythe has devised a film and installation programme focusing and expanding upon the visions of his co-creators Yasit and Gjoka. William Forsythe’s deep interest in the transformation and reflection of basic organisational principles has been the foundation of a broad range of artistic works: his installations and films, which Forsythe calls ›choreographic objects‹. In cooperation with Rauf›RubberLegz‹Yasit and Riley Watts, he is showing the video work ›Alignigung‹ (2016) at PACT – a dense observation tracing the almost sculptural, choreographic concentration of two bodies. In addition, a new choreographic object will be presented with ›Himmel & Hölle‹ (2019). Rauf›RubberLegz‹Yasit – the protagonist in ›Alignigung‹ – will also be following Forsythe‘s invitation to present his own video work ›Doomed‹ (2018).
