The Reviews are in for Restless Creature!

Wendy Whelan Embraces Modern Dance at Jacob's Pillow 

"It’s hard to think of another woman who could dance these pieces, by four different choreographers, half so strikingly.  Everything about her is riveting, interesting, unusual, intelligent." - Alastair Macaulay, The New York Times

At Jacob's Pillow, Whelan is a 'creature' beautifully transformed.

"(Ms. Whelan) is one of those artists who submerge their physical selves into their art in such a way that humanness is, for a few sublime moments, transcended." - Janine Parker, The Boston Globe
