Wendy Whelan and Kathy Westwater: Wendy dances a solo by Kathy
Iconoclastic choreographer Kathy Westwater builds an intimate and interior-reaching solo for former NYCB dancer, Wendy Whelan, performed on this program.
Wendy Perron, author and choreographer, remarked to Wendy Whelan upon seeing this solo, “This is the most downtown thing you have ever done.”
The two explore the development of the solo, a dance portrait entitled, Sophie, discuss their childhood friendship and their divergent artistic paths. They come together in dance for the first time since the 1970s.
