'Artifact' Puts a New Spin on Ballet

Not usually a fan of the ballet? The Boston Ballet’s newest show, William Forsythe’s Artifact, is like nothing you’ve ever seen before. The show reinvents traditional ballet by blending basic motions with architectural patterns and contemporary rhythms to create a truly unique experience. In a story about the dance style itself, the show’s modern choreography “wows” audiences from Act 1 to curtain call. William Forsythe is “widely recognized as one of the most important choreographers working today” (Roslyn Sulcas, The New York Times).

The performance combines enthralling choreography with spoken word and modern rhythm, while the dancer’s costumes give off serious Yeezy Season 1 vibes. 

If you're looking for a fun date night idea, Artifact runs February 23–March 5 at the Boston Opera House, with tickets starting at just $45.
