Some of a Thousand Words is an unfolding of new and familiar ideas and techniques from the pairing of Brian Brooks and Wendy Whelan. Whelan, best known for her nearly three-decade career as principal dancer with the New York City Ballet, retired from the company – but clearly not dance – in 2014. Her Thousand Words partner, dancer/choreographer Brian Brooks, is the Choreographer in Residence at Chicago’s Harris Theater. His work is defined not only by his explorations of the physical possibilities and improbabilities of human movement, but a deep connection to the communicative power of music.

Some of a Thousand Words was created during a recent residency in Whelan’s hometown of Louisville, KY and premiered in June 2016 at the International Festival of Arts and Ideas in New Haven, CT. This five-piece performance features Whelan dance both solo and with Brooks. The pieces were built around performances by the innovative string quartet, Brooklyn Rider, as well as feature compositions by Tydonai Braxton, John Luther Adams, Philip Glass and the quartet’s own Colin Jacobsen. Collaborative and kinetic, the performance combines elements of Whelan’s cool, classically informed approach to modern dance with Brooks’ more naturalistic technique. The result is a singular style that captures both the tension of two dancers playing off each other and the release of those moments when the pairing reveals itself as both inspired and intuitive.
Wendy Whelan / Brian Brooks in Some of a Thousand Words is a Joyce Theater Production.
