December 2 – 6, 1998

Alternate Title EIDOS : TELOS
Country of Origin Germany
Description A meditation on time, vision, and death, the BAM production of EIDOS : TELOS scored William Forsythe—who made the piece in choreographic association with the Ballett Frankfurt ensemble—a Bessie. Jack Anderson, reviewing the production in the New York Times, wrote that “trembling dancers sought to cram each minute with activity, as if aware that time and life were rapidly passing. Yet when a violin phrase recalled a theme from Stravinsky's ‘Apollo,’ that serene melody was a reminder that art often tries to make images that transcend the temporal.”
