What about the work of the Frankfurt Ballet and William Forsyth? There
technology is not only being used in performance, but being used as
rehearsal and dramaturgical tools also. I don't think ballet need
necessarily be left out of experimentation with technology as one of its
developmental tools. Certainly it is a form that stresses the past - but
so does much modern dance (doesn't it?)
