Whim W’Him’s Choreographic Shindig

Olivier Wevers, artistic director of the Seattle dance company Whim W'Him, put out a worldwide call for choreographers and 95 applied. He then invited his dancers to select the choreographers they wanted to work with, literally giving them a voice in what audiences would eventually take in. Among those chosen were emerging choreographers Maurya Kerr, Joshua Peugh and Ihsan Rustem. This unique process should generate something equally unique on stage at what is arguably this town's best venue to see dance: the intimate and comfortable Erickson Theatre on Capitol Hill.

If you go: Whim W’Him’s Choreographic Shindig, Erickson Theatre Off Broadway, through Sept. 20 (Tickets start at $25) --F.D.
