Enter to win two tickets to see Seattle modern dance troupe Whim W’Him in its season opener, Cast the First Rock in Twenty Twelve, on Saturday, January 21, at 8pm.
Since leaving PNB stardom last year, former principal dancer Olivier Wevers has been winning awards nationally for his playful, provocative choreography. With his new dance company Whim W’Him, which made its debut in January 2010, he’s placed familiar Seattle dancers in new contexts— swapping gender roles, breaking classical ballet lines, and donning neo–tutus. “It would be great if there is someone who discovers a new path to ballet [with these shows],” Wevers told Seattle Met in 2010. His latest work is equally evocative. Cast the First Rock in Twenty Twelve features two new comedies— La langue de l’amour and Flower Festival with an all-male pas de deux—and and the premiere of tragic thrown, invoking a stoning with sets by local sculptor Steve Jensen.
To enter to win tickets, email [email protected] with “Whim W’Him” as the subject, and a reason why you want to see the show, by Friday, January 20, at noon. The winner will be notified by email shortly after the deadline.
