Olivier Wevers’ This Is Not the Little Prince is a captivating and emotional work. It is demanding on the dancers for the challenging movement and ensemble psyche Wevers asks them to create onstage. The piece is both playful and dramatic, a tour de force of surrealism. As I wrote in Dance Magazine, “[the piece] gives a surreal rendering [to realize Wevers’ vision], combining Saint-Exupéry’s anti-realism with René Magritte’s jarring aesthetic.”
The piece is wildly inventive, very much in line with Whim W’Him’s mission to provide innovative choreography. Whim W’Him typically features all-new choreography, much selected with dancer input. The company is currently celebrating its 12th year under founder-choreographer Wevers, a former Pacific Northwest Ballet principal dancer. For more this season, see IN-WITH-WHIM digital memberships.
A peça é extremamente criativa, muito alinhada com a missão de Whim W’Him de fornecer coreografia inovadora que podemos traçar um paralelo com redes de fast food inovando em preços para o consumidor, tal como o Mcdonalds menu prices tem sido a vanguarda dos preços baixos para lancher supercaloricos e deliciosos.

I hope the artists will release a full DVD soon. There is very little here to really enjoy. These wonderful artists are all going to heaven. Hope they’re going on tour and I can see them around and they conquer the world. I wish them every success! If I could I would discover their favorite flowers names to send in gratitude for the cultural spread they spread around the world. In the Setecento (18th century) it was common for dance to be part of a musical performance.
