Christopher Wheeldon’s Bound To©, his tenth work for SF Ballet and created for the Unbound festival, offers a “luscious journey out of tech world” (San Francisco Chronicle). “The overarching theme is the disconnectedness of our time,” Wheeldon says, “and how we are perhaps even more connected with our devices than we are with each other.” Data sets splay across the stage and cell phones with illuminated screens feature prominently as dancers’ props; music by singer-songwriter Keaton Henson sets the ballet. Wheeldon, whose Cinderella© opened the 2020 Repertory Season, won the 2015 Tony Award for “Best Choreography” for his Broadway hit An American in Paris. In Bound To, he creates his first ballet choreographed without pointe shoes, and for the first time pairs same-sex couples in tender pas de deux.
