RESTLESS CREATURE preceded by GIMP GAIT

Screening

03/04/2017 1:30pm

This elegant, transporting film offers an intimate portrait of prima ballerina Wendy Whelan on the occasion of her departure from New York City Ballet following a record-setting three decades with the company. Restless Creature opens to find Whelan 46-years-old and struggling with a painful injury. From here we step back and forth in time, to revisit Whelan’s Kentucky roots and witness her new collaboration with young choreographers to create an exquisite quartet of vignettes.
Co-directed by Linda Saffire and Adam Schlesinger, Restless Creature profiles an artist undergoing great change, asking fundamental questions about creativity, identity, longevity and self-worth. Through it all, Whelan is frank, articulate, inspiring and very much alive and restless.
