Wendy Whelan + Maya Beiser + Lucinda Childs + David Lang / THE DAY

* November 6

Dance legend Wendy Whelan and the prescient, avant-garde cellist Maya Beiser perform together in this captivating meditation on life and the inevitable passage of the soul. With choreography by the seminal post-modernist Lucinda Childs and set to the day and world to come by Pulitzer Prize–winning composer David Lang, THE DAY explores the inner journey, temporal and eternal. Achingly beautiful and dreamlike, Beiser’s solo expands in a multitrack sound design that fills the stage with an elusive orchestra, where photographic scenography, haunting narration, and Whelan’s evocative artistry conjure a world of spectral beauty, as fleeting as life itself.
Moving Stories

* November 7 - 9
* 8 - 9:30 pm

Moving Stories features original dances as diverse as the choreographers’ points of view and approaches to dancemaking — from narration in physical form to the poetic abstraction of a single idea. Through collaboration and creative expression, talented advanced choreography students create works that explore the hustle and bustle of a daily commute, draw inspiration from the dynamics of the dinner table, or illuminate the human condition during challenging times. The American College Dance Association has consistently recognized dances premiered on the Muhlenberg stage for excellence in choreography and performance. Witness the creations of talented young choreographers from one of the top collegiate dance programs in the country.
