William Forsythe’s Swinging Pendulum Installation at Brighton Festival


During this year Brighton Festival, one of the world’s most innovative choreographers, William Forsythe, has filled the old municipal market space with hundreds of delicate pendulums that swing in timed sequences.

As you move around without touching the pendulums, your strides and side-steps will produce a lively choreography of manifold and intricate avoidance strategies.


Forsythe’s blend of choreography and artwork, in which you become the dancer, contrasts reactive spontaneity and pre-programmed precision. This is the latest reinvention of a piece that evolves in reaction to the space it occupies: a tribute to a great Brighton landmark destined to become a new Dance Space for the city.

You can enjoy Nowhere and Everywhere at the Same Time No. 2 at Circus Street Market from now till May 25.
