Ground-breaking dancer Wendy Whelan, legendary choreographer Lucinda Childs, renowned cellist/ creative producer Maya Beiser and Pulitzer Prizewinning composer David Lang partner for the Bay Area premiere of The Day. The bold, collaborative evening is a sensory exploration of interconnected human journeys--life and the eternal--as seen through the shared languages of music and dance.
Since retiring from New York City Ballet, Wendy Whelan has embarked on numerous collaborative dance experiments with contemporary choreographers, musicians and artists. In the latest project, “The Day,” Whelan joins forces with three other creative minds - choreographer Lucinda Childs, cellist Maya Beiser and composer David Lang – to explore human relationships, links and states of being.
