Wendy Whelan presents Restless Creature
The New York City Ballet principal—considered one of the greatest contemporary ballerinas for her singular athletic, animalistic approach to movement, and a muse to many—continues to explore the possibilities of dance in "Restless Creature," a program of four duets created by and performed with choreographers of her choice. The suite comprises Kyle Abraham's The Serpent and the Smoke, Josh Beamish's Waltz Epoca, Brian Brooks's First Fall and Alejandro Cerrudo's Ego Et Tu. In each, Whelan impacts the choreographers' styles and vice versa.
