Legítimo/Rezo is in two parts – a stunning solo created for Jone San Martín by William Forsythe and a conversation through dance on the unique process of choreographic creation by William Forsythe with his dancers, Jone San Martín and Josh Johnson.
Jone San Martín, who has worked with William Forsythe since 1992, immerses us in the creative process behind Forsythe’s choreography. Her body becomes a mediator between choreographic writing and interpretation, between guidelines and free improvisation.
In defining the way William Forsythe works, she turns to Lawrence Durrell: “Truth disappears with the telling of it. It can only be conveyed, not stated.” (Clea, The Alexandria Quartet).
William Forsythe is recognised as one of the world’s foremost choreographers. His work is acknowledged for reorienting the practice of ballet from its identification with classical repertoire to a dynamic 21st-century art form. Forsythe’s deep interest in the fundamental principles of organisation has led him to produce a wide range of projects including installations, films, and web-based knowledge creation.
Born in San Sebastian, Spain, Jone San Martín was a member of the Barcelona Ballet, Ballet Nacional de España and Ballet Royal de Wallonie in Belgium before joining Ballet Frankfurt in 1992.
Josh Johnson is a member of The Forsythe Company since 2010. He previously danced with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.
