Some of a Thousand Words
Some of a Thousand Words is the second collaboration between Wendy Whelan and Brian Brooks featuring live music by the New York-based string quartet, Brooklyn Rider. The evening includes the duet First Fall, which Wendy and Brian first developed for Restless Creature (co-produced by The Joyce Theater in 2013). First Fall bears testament to the personal friendship and effervescent artistic chemistry which emerged from these two collaborators. Wendy and Brian further explore this relationship with a new collaborator, Brooklyn Rider, who perform existing music from composers John Luther Adams, Jacob Cooper, Tyondai Braxton, Philip Glass, Evan Ziporyn and a new composition from Brooklyn Rider’s own Colin Jacobsen.
