About This Performance

Ground-breaking dancer Wendy Whelan, legendary choreographer Lucinda Childs, renowned cellist/creative producer Maya Beiser and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang partner for the Bay Area premiere of The Day. The bold, collaborative evening is a sensory exploration of interconnected human journeys—life and the eternal—as seen through the shared languages of music and dance.

“She’s the best,” says Mikhail Baryshnikov of Wendy Whelan. “There’s a complexity, a sense of internal life, a woman on stage. You’re always trying to decode this person when she moves.”

“She summons from her instrument an emotional power so stirring that even the most stoic audience members risk turning into sobbing sacks of flesh, reports The New York Times of Maya Beiser.”
