2012 brought new horizons, new challenges and new triumphs to Whim W’Him,
now ensconced as the resident dance company of Intiman Theatre (recently renamed Playhouse at the Seattle Center). As a salute to the past year’s achievements, here is a brief visual reminiscence of Whim W’Him’s two major Seattle programs, via the elegant images of Bamberg Fine Art Photography.
For the January 2012 program, Casting the First Rock in Twenty-Twelve, Whim W’Him artistic director Olivier Wevers drew on the imagery of hurled stones in ThrOwn, presenting a powerful and deeply affecting exploration of the primitive human tendency to righteous cruelty. Floor, backdrop and wings painted by artist Steve Jensen formed an evocative setting for the tragic story of a woman stoned.
