Wewolf: Henry and Edward

When: Sat., Sept. 15, 2 & 7:30 p.m. 2018

Robert Louis Stevenson's Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde has fascinated readers for more than a century. What sort of transformation can remake a mild-mannered intellectual as a cruel monster with savage instincts? That evocative transformation is the inspiration for Wewolf's new dance piece, Henry and Edward. James Gregg and RubberLegz fuse breakdancing, contortion and contemporary dance to lock their bodies together into a series of dynamically altered human forms. Gregg and RubberLegz's bodies are recognizably human, but also somehow more than human. Wewolf presents the North American premiere of Henry and Edward at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, September 15, at the Grandel Theatre (3610 Grandel Square; www.dancestlouis.org). Tickets are $30 to $40.
