“Feather Weight,” by Quinn Wharton
April 15, 2022
In a new work featuring six dancers from the Ballet Idaho Trainee program dressed in school uniforms, choreographer and filmmaker Quinn Wharton‘s “Feather Weight” physically depicts growing up and the changes that come with getting older through dance. “I was moved to make a piece that reflected the transition point between youth and adulthood, and the connection points with our friends at that age,” says Wharton. “Feather Weight” demonstrates the dancers’ ballet technique while playing with soft contemporary movement in ripples and motifs.
