Choreography by John Heginbotham
As a dancer with Mark Morris Dance Group, John Heginbotham won
over audiences with his magnetism and incisive musicality. With
Dance Heginbotham, he combines clever movement with a range of
music, from Daft Punk to Irving Berlin, into an utterly compelling
form of dance-theater.
For their BAM debut, Heginbotham and company present Dark Theater, a brand new work inspired by Dadaist painter Francis Picabia’s provocative 1924 ballet Relâche, set to a mellifluous score by Erik Satie. Six dancers inhabit a blissfully nonsensical world in which the floor and ceiling are occasionally reversed, the non sequitur is king, and movement perpetually affirms the now.
