Wendy Whelan’s Performance of “Restless Creature” CANCELLED

// Feb 7,2014


Following hip surgery that took place just one week after the August 14, 2013 premiere of herRestless Creature, Wendy Whelan, in consultation with her doctors, has concluded that her body needs more time to heal and that she must postpone her eight city, Spring 2014 (March 16 – April 11) inaugural U.S. tour of the work. Unfortunately, this means that Ms. Whelan’s performance scheduled for April 11, 2014 at UNC’s Memorial Hall will not take place.

Whelan said, “It is with careful thought and with the support of my wellness team that I have decided to postpone the tour of my project Restless Creature, until I have made a more complete recovery from the hip surgery I had last August. I have worked diligently following my surgery to meet my deadline for being rehearsal ready, but I simply need more time to strengthen and heal. I have to honor my body’s wishes. I know I will continue to make progress, and I hope to bring these wonderful new pieces of choreography to life very soon with the physicality they both deserve and require to be shown at their absolute best.”

Tickets for this performance can be exchanged for an upcoming Spring 2014 performance. For assistance with ticket exchanges, please contact the Carolina Performing Arts Box Office at 919-843-3333.
