About

“A gut punch... nothing short of life itself: by turns hopeful, funny, surprising, and tragic”The New York Times

A collaboration among legends, The Day is a new music/dance work by cellist Maya Beiser, dancer Wendy Whelan, and choreographer Lucinda Childs, with music by David Lang. This bold, evening-long sensory exploration of two journeys—life and the eternal, post-mortal voyage of the soul—weaves together universal themes through the shared language of music and dance.

Cellist Maya Beiser, who conceived the piece, is a veteran of the world’s most revered stages; she has been described by the Boston Globe as “a force of nature” and by Rolling Stone as a “cello rock star.” Wendy Whelan, widely considered one of the world’s leading dancers, spent 30 years as a principal dancer with New York City Ballet and originated numerous roles in new works by the world's most esteemed choreographers. The two will be onstage all evening, embodying the iconic choreography of Lucinda Childs—a Commandeur in France’s Ordre des Arts et des Lettres and 2018 Hall of Fame inductee at the National Museum of Dance—to the original music of Pulitzer Prize winner David Lang.
