The Dance Is In The Details

The choreography of Christopher Wheeldon has turned a lot of heads in recent years, but it isn’t necessarily the grand scope of his vision that separates him from the pack. “What Wheeldon tunes in to, rather, are the little mysteries of human expression.

How wistfulness, trepidation and heartache are communicated with a look and a gesture and, perhaps, a particularly expressive arch of the foot.”
