It's time for another round of How Awesome Is Wendy Whelan? Let Us Count the Ways!
The New York City Ballet principal has always been a thoughtful dancer, interested in exploring new ways to expand her artistry. Recently she's been working on projects that even take her outside the realm of ballet. Her latest adventure, Restless Creature, is an evening of dance featuring Whelan performing new works by contemporary choreographers Kyle Abraham, Josh Beamish, Brian Brooks and Alejandro Cerrudo. The show's official premiere will be at Jacob's Pillow this August. But you don't have to wait that long to get a taste of what's sure to be an amazing program.
This Sunday, Whelan and her team will give the world a sneak peek at Restless Creature as part of the Guggenheim's excellent Works & Process series. The presentation will include excerpts from the show and a discussion with Whelan and the four choreographers, moderated by Ella Baff of Jacob's Pillow.
Naturally, this thing is totally sold out. But never fear! There'll be a livestream of the event, which starts at 3 pm EST, here.
