WHIRLWIND
Program Education/Outreach Press Tech Rider Booking Downloads

A gorgeous dance work integrating trance, rhythmic breathing and spiral motion, Whirlwind was inspired by Nai-Ni Chen's personal journey along the Silk Road.  Delving into the ancient mysteries of the old Asiatic cultures, the dance will transport the audience out of the driven, jangling clamor of modern life to ponder the simplicity and spiritual richness of another place and time.  Four-time Grammy award winning composer Glen Velez has created a magical tapestry of sound, evoking the Eastern realms with music that is at once seductive and soulful: swaying rhythms, delicate dreamlike themes, mystic chanting and bursts of dynamic - almost primitive - energy.  This visual feast is enhanced through the beautiful and exotic art work by award winning artist Jayanthi Moorthy.  
Whirlwind
 was created with a grant from New Music USA's Live Music for Dance program which is supported by the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation.
