Maya Beiser, Wendy Whelan, Lucinda Childs & David Lang: The Day
“A gut punch … nothing short of life itself: by turns hopeful, funny, surprising, and tragic.” –New York Times
A momentous melding of multidisciplinary creative genius, The Day integrates the work of cello virtuoso Maya Beiser, minimalist postmodern choreographic legend Lucinda Childs, acclaimed contemporary composer David Lang, and dance luminary Wendy Whelan (recently named co-artistic director of the New York City Ballet).
A two-part requiem to 9/11, The Day is a bold, sensory exploration of life and the eternal. Through unforgettable movement and music, the performers weave together memory and resilience, mind and soul, in a collaborative music/movement/theater work on universal themes.
