the day

November 6, 8 p.m.
Williams Center for the Arts
Lafayette College
Easton, PA

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.
