With a clairvoyant Asian manicurist as guide and a lavishly costumed supporting cast of agents, shamans, patrons, parrots and pirates, The Returns takes its audience on a rakish tour of art culture. Art as commodity and fetish, the artist as medium and charlatan, the art market as salon and playing field – Forsythe’s caustic, ribald Defilée of archetypes and attitudes grants its audience no quarter.
