Wendy Whelan, Brian Brooks, + Brooklyn Rider, Some of a Thousand Words

A Celebration of Women in Dance

Wednesday, March 15, 2017 at 7:30 p.m.
Thursday, March 16, 2017 at 7:30 p.m.
Alice Jepson Theatre

Co-commissioned by the Modlin Center for the Arts, the International Festival of Arts & Ideas, The Joyce Theater, and the Kentucky Center for the Arts, this new full-length work was created by former New York City Ballet star and principal dancer Wendy Whelan and dancer and choreographer Brian Brooks. This new work of solos and duets represents a continuation and extension of their exploration, as well as a close and creative collaboration with the New York City-based string quartet Brooklyn Rider, which will perform live. Emphasizing the agency of the music in relation to the dance, the project will use existing music from composers John Luther Adams, Tyondai Braxton, Philip Glass, and Evan Ziporyn, and a new composition from Brooklyn Rider’s own Colin Jacobson.

LEARN! Join the Modlin Center for the Arts for Modlin Arts After Words, a post-show question-and-answer session with the artists.
