This week, along with putting Whimmers through their paces in his own More and The Sofa, artistic director Olivier Wevers has presided over rehearsals of Crave, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa‘s second piece for Whim W’Him. Since June when she created it on them, the dancers have had the opportunity to practice Crave only in bits. “It’s hard now,” says one of them, “when we had it so tight last summer. It almost feels as if we’re starting over.” There is a video, but mostly the dancers have had to keep the seeds of its motions and emotions in their minds and muscle memory, ready to call up when needed.
