The company premiere of Artifact Suite recently occurred in September at the Wortham Theater with rave reviews from Houston Press, Houston Chronicle, and Broadway World. As the third Forsythe piece added to Houston Ballet’s diverse repertoire, the visit to Los Angeles adds exciting momentum to a growing relationship with Mr. Forsythe’s iconic works.
