On Saturday evening at City Center’s studios I saw Jacoby&Pronk and Whim W’him.

Drew Jacoby and Rubinald Pronk were mesmerizing as usual and as exquisite as ever. They performed excerpts from “One” by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa and “B Sonata” by Leo Mujic. Also, Rubi showed a solo choreographed by Ochoa as well.

It was my first experience with Seattle based company, Whim W’him, but I will most definitely be looking out for more from director/choreographer, Olivier Wevers. “Monster”, in three sections, is about homophobia, addiction, and a destructive relationship. I thought the movement was powerful enough in itself that the concept did not need to be expressed quite as obviously as it was. Nonetheless, Wever’s style is fresh and intriguing, and the dancers were equally impressive.

    Ah, I really wanted to see Whim W’him. I forgot all about them coming. I wasn’t able to get to any APAP shows . . . so disappointing. James Sewell Ballet is performing tomorrow at 2pm at Symphony Space though!
