Forsythe achieves perfect neo-classical form in The Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude, a dizzy delight of virtuoso technique and crystalline pointe work. A sampler of duets, individually re-worked for PNB, New Suite's multiple pairings articulate a diversity of forms as well as matters between the sexes. In the middle, somewhat elevated returns: endlessly prized by dancers and audiences, its relentless pace and fierce physicality serve as paradigm for Forsythe's revolutionary impact on 21st-century ballet.
