Church of Art: Christopher Wheeldon

Hello Everyone. If you all will get settled down in to your pews, we’ll begin our service.

Today’s sermon is brought to you by choreographer Christopher Wheeldon. Wheeldon is arguably the most in-demand choreographer in the world of modern ballet. Renown for working with complex groupings, he also excels at solos and pas de deux, including this beautiful piece, After the Rain, danced by Yuan Yuan Tan and Damian Smith. As you experience this piece, please remember you are not in the critic’s chair. Let’s use these ten minutes to soak in beauty, creativity, innovation, and wonder. Amen? Amen.

When religion failed me, art saved me. Now I worship at the Church of art, at the intersection of art + spirituality. Click here to soak up more inspiration. (Amen? Amen.)

So lovely. I started sobbing about half way through and didn’t stop!

covered in goosebumps from head to toe. I can feel the hair on the top of my head standing up.
