Choreographic Shindig supports emerging choreographic talent while simultaneously empowering the Whim W’Him dancers by placing them at the helm of the curatorial process. The latest crop of dancer-selected choreographers includes three artists hailing from New York, Chicago and Puerto Rico: Brendan Duggan, Co-Founder and Co-Director of LoudHoundMovement (LHM), a contemporary dance collective based in Brooklyn; Alice Klock, Hubbard Street’s Choreographic Fellow in 2017 and one of Dance Magazine’s 25 to watch in 2018; and Omar Román De Jesús, The Dance Gallery Festival and Reverb Dance Festival award winner.
All three choreographers are new to Whim W’Him and were selected via a competitive application process. The company received close to 200 applications from all over the world and from choreographers ranging in experience and diversity. This year the dancers selected Duggan, Klock and Román De Jesús to join them in the studio for eight-week residencies that culminate in 7 performances of their new creations.

On a bitterly cold London evening, schoolteacher Kyra Hollis receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, successful businessman Tom Sergeant.

David Hare’s Tony-Award winning play delves deep into the inner workings of conversation and human intimacy.
