Noted choreographer William Forsythe to join USC School of Dance

Throughout his career, he has worked closely with composers, architects, philosophers, digital animators and sport scientists,” USC Kaufman Dean Robert Cutietta said. “Our strengths as a university match his strengths as an artist, and we are thrilled for him to join our faculty.”

Vice Dean Jodie Gates, the dance school’s director, said Forsythe’s choreography “has transformed the field.”

“He has crossed boundaries and discovered commonalities within dance, visual art, architecture and media, among many other disciplines,” Gates said. “This type of scholarly practice and creative thinking through composition and collaboration is what our students will learn in the core curriculum at USC Kaufman.”

USC plans to integrate his choreographic methods into its curriculum for improvisation and composition courses.
