Dancer Wendy Whelan and cellist Maya Beiser join forces with the seminal modern dance choreographer Lucinda Childs to create THE DAY – an evening-length work, with evocative music by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang. THE DAY is a work-in-development being worked on at LUMBERYARD over a two-week production and technical residency, and will have its world premiere at Jacob's Pillow in summer 2019 and its New York premiere at The Joyce Theater in fall 2019, before touring the U.S. and abroad. Audiences are invited to see the work-in-development at LUMBERYARD in showings on December 7 and 8.
Featuring both Beiser and Whelan onstage for the duration of the performance, THE DAY is a meditation on two journeys – the mortal passage, followed by the eternal, post-mortal voyage of the soul. This bold, highly collaborative work explores universal themes not easily grappled with – memory, aging, death, the survival of the soul – through the shared language of music and dance.
Tickets are $100 and include the work-in-development showing and a post-showing reception.
