Dancing amidst William Forsythe’s Swinging Pendulums

For more photos and videos from Forsythe’s pendulums, explore the Circus Street - Old Market Brighton location page and browse the #WilliamForsythe hashtag.

Hundreds of timed pendulums dangle from the ceiling of an old municipal market building in the seaside town of Brighton, England. Designed by renowned choreographer William Forsythe, the swinging weights aren’t meant to be simply observed—they’re meant to make you dance. Visitors must dodge the pendulums in order to traverse the space, playfully jumping, running and moving in new ways as they go.

The installation, titled “Nowhere and Everywhere at the Same Time No. 2,” comes as a part of the 2014 Brighton Festival (@brightdome_brightfest), an exhibition of music, dance, theater, comedy and visual arts open until May 25.
