The contemporary dance group is eager to get in touch with the audience again and this time they bring the performance to the public!
SEATTLE – Whim W’Him, a contemporary dance troupe based in Seattle, are finally preparing for their twelfth season after a long pandemic shutdown. This time, however, they begin to present their appearances to the public.
Whim W’Him will host several “guerrilla style” performances over the next few weeks as a thank you to the communities who supported the group while the local theaters were closed.
“We just sit down in a location of our choice and do a dance that some of our dancers have choreographed,” said contemporary dancer Liane Aung.
Performances begin at 8 p.m. to capture the late summer sunset.
While the local stages were closed, the Whim W’Him dancers turned on some dramatic short films with elaborate dance routines.
The group warmed up on Seattle’s Pier 62 to a breathtaking rainbow and amber sunset. “The crowd was very receptive and it went incredibly quiet as they picked it up,” said Wever.
Next Wednesday the group will dance at the Seattle Center. The group will be at Downtown Bellevue Park the following Thursday and the AIDS Memorial Path in Seattle the following Friday.
