William Forsythe’s workwithinwork begins in the clear, textured air of an open stage, surrounded by the haunting breaths of Berio’s Duetti for two violins. Winding with a gorgeous, intricate grace through a series of jewel-like scenes, the dancers create an evolving, baroque body of time, which branches out in ever-increasing complexity as the piece moves, delicate, rolling toward it’s breathless end.

workwithinwork received its World Premiere by the Frankfurt Ballet on October 16, 1998.

workwithinwork was given its American Ballet Theatre Company Premiere at City Center, New York on October 24, 2003.
