“Spring ’23” is not a very imaginative performance name for what looks to be an imaginative program of new contemporary dance works.
Seattle dance company Whim W’Him presents internationally acclaimed dance creators Emilie Leriche and Rauf Yasit alongside Whim W’Him artistic director Olivier Wevers.
- Leriche, a French-American choreographer based in Sweden, performs with GöteborgsOperans Danskompani and was a 2015 Princess Grace Award winner.
- Yasit, also known as rubberlegz, is the creator of an original movement language that breaks down barriers between dance genres. Born and raised in Germany, Yasit is now a Los Angeles-based choreographer, director, dancer and visual artist.
- Wevers continues to explore his fluid movement language and theatricality, which makes Whim W’Him a standout amongst contemporary dance companies.
We do like the fact that this dance concert will … um, move around. “Spring ’23” will be presented in Seattle May 12, 13, 19 and 20. Whim W’Him will also present the program on Vashon Island on May 17, 2023, and on Whidbey Island on May 24, 2023.
