Lighting, costumes, sets, and music help Whim W’Him productions come to life. Your donation helps fund the collaboration with talented artists who make it happen.

About the Project

“Under Wevers’ guidance, the company has become a canvas on which a growing number of choreographers can sketch a versatile array of stage visions.” Michael Upchurch, The Seattle Times

Since the formation of Whim W’Him in 2009, the company has created 35 new contemporary dance works from 14 global artists. We are proud to offer our guest choreographers a ‘blank canvas’ on which to create. They collaborate with talented artists to design and determine all the production elements including lighting, costumes, sets, and music.

Donate today and you help fund the essential elements of our final program of the season, OUT-spoken, June 3-11, 2016:

·      Lighting design

·      Costume build and design

·      Set build and design

·      Music composition fees.

The June program promises to delight and intrigue, with all new contemporary dance works from fan favorites and a fresh face. The Montreal-based, 2015 Princess Grace Choreography winner James Gregg will present his dynamic and articulate style. We’re thrilled to welcome the return of Whim W’Him darling and the 2013 National Dance Award UK winner, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, who will create her 4th piece on the company. And finally, a new work from Artistic Director, Olivier Wevers, who Chosen Magazine said “has become synonymous with creative ingenuity”. Some of the works feature new musical compositions and elaborate sets.

By making a donation- of any size- you support our extraordinary and talented dancers. Your contribution towards this project will make it possible for us to create rich, high caliber new contemporary dance works in Seattle.

*Please note that the budget for this project accounts for the production elements and the 7% administrative fee from Power2Give.
