The Royal Swedish Ballet presents two of the most acclaimed choreographers of our time – William Forsythe and David Dawson. With their signature choreographic form, these artists have created a modern identity for classical ballet.

»artifact suite« Artifact Suite, which premiered in 2004, arose out of the full-length ballet Artifact. The work as a whole was created by choreographer William Forsythe in 1984 for the Frankfurt Ballet, where he served as artistic director from 1984 to 2004. Forsythe is one of the most important contemporary choreographers. In Artifact Suite, Forsythe offers the audience a generous helping of playfulness paired with brilliant composition in his ode to classical ballet.

»the grey area«  The Grey Area moves the audience beyond time and space with its abstract, emotionally-charged choreography. A modern ballet with a focus on the dynamics, aesthetics and weightlessness of classical ballet, and where the dancers’ personal interpretation is at the forefront. David Dawson is one of the most innovative choreographers working in classical ballet today. He is adored by critics and audiences alike.

Artifact Suite & The Grey Area were previously staged at the Royal Swedish Opera in 2014 and 2006, respectively.
