Christopher Wheeldon is starting his own ballet company. Nice to see that SF Ballet played a small part in this. From the NY Times:
“The idea began taking shape last summer when the San Francisco Ballet presented one of his pieces at the Lincoln Center Festival. The choreographer William Forsythe had a work on the same program, and the two spoke at length.
?He basically told me that I needed to take a step forward on my own and do something different, and coming from him ? he is a man who has continued to invent himself ? it was immediately resonant,? Mr. Wheeldon said.”
