Thousand of white balloons, suspended in a billowing wash of sound; an air-borne landscape of relationship, of distance, of humans and emptiness, of coalescence and decision. In the gorgeous, breathless space that is choreographer William Forsythes «Scattered Crowd», the viewer inhabits and alters, through their stillness or speed, their sense of proportion and time, the configurations that make up this constantly shifting, ecstatic world.
