The Day is a new music/dance work by cellist Maya Beiser, dancer Wendy Whelan, and choreographer Lucinda Childs, with music by David Lang. A collaboration among legends, it is an evening-long sensory exploration of two journeys - life and the eternal, post-mortal voyage of the soul. This bold, highly collaborative work explores universal themes through the shared langueage of music and dance. Conceived by Beiser, The Day features the cellist and Whelan onstage, embodying the iconic choreography of Childs to the original music of Pulitzer Prize winner David Lang.
