Show Full Description

In 1984, Wendy Whelan joined the New York City Ballet as an apprentice; by 1991, she had been promoted to Principal Dancer. She quickly became a revered and beloved figure throughout the dance world. Wrote Roslyn Sulcas, “her sinewy physicality, her kinetic clarity, and her dramatic, otherworldly intensity have created a quite distinct and unusual identity.” Linda Saffire and Adam Schlesinger’s film follows this extraordinary artist throughout a passage of life that all dancers must face, when she must confront the limitations of her own body and adapt to a different relationship with the art form she loves so madly. An NYFF54 selection. An Abramorama release.

Q&As with Linda Saffire, Adam Schlesinger and Wendy Whelan Wednesday, May 24 at 7:00pm Thursday, May 25 at 5:00pm Saturday, May 27 at 7:00pm Sunday, May 28 at 1:00pm
