This summer, The Box at Freespace transforms into an interactive gallery space.

Come dodge and weave through a shifting obstacle course of hundreds of pendulums suspended from automated grids that swing and sweep according to set patterns. As you navigate this labyrinth, ensuring not to bump any of the swinging orbs along the way, you realise you are creating your own unique dance.

For the first time in Asia, experience the undulating world of one of the 20th century’s most iconic artists. William Forsythe has been creating works for stage, screen and galleries over nearly half a century, transforming ballet from its classical repertoire to a dynamic contemporary art form.

Originally created in an abandoned building on New York’s historic High Line, the installation has been developed in contexts as diverse as the monumental industrial architecture of the Turbine Hall of the Tate Modern, and the historical setting provided by the Arsenale of the Venice Biennale.

It is accompanied by three Forsythe’s films: Alignigung (2016), Solo (1997) and Lectures from Improvisation Technologies (2011).
