Breaking out of her typical dance-making rituals, choreographer Rebecca A. Ferrell will be showing works in progress of her new piece, Whatever... A Work in Progress, throughout the country.
Her dancers, Carla Gruby and Charles Gowin, rehearse for an hour prior to each showing and then perform the piece in its current state.
Whatever... A Work in Progress is a best friends' pas deux disguised as a heteronormative duet but really everyone is queer. Also a love letter to America. Also a ballet. Also a bullfight.
