Choreographer Olivier Wevers tackles gun violence in his new ballet, "Instantly Bound."

Choreographer Olivier Wevers doesn’t shy away from difficult subjects. Since founding his contemporary dance troupe Whim W’Him in 2009, Wevers has created works that address violence against gays, drug abuse, domestic abuse and capital punishment.
