5 THRU Feb 21

Choreographic Objects

Beginning on Oct. 31, get moving at the Institute of Contemporary Art’s Choreographic Objects, the first comprehensive U.S. exhibit by William Forsythe. The former director of the Frankfurt Ballet invites the public to wind through 80 hanging pendulums, cross a gallery using gymnastic rings and try (spoiler: and fail) to hold a feather duster absolutely still. Beyond the small- and large-scale installations, watch two dancers slowly twist their bodies in video Alignigung 2, and mark your calendar for Feb. 21, the final day of the exhibit when the Vermont-based choreographer chats with chief curator Eva Respini. / Sarah Hagman
