Dance Heginbotham
Choreography by John Heginbotham

“…a strong choreographic personality—a refreshing mixture of casualness and discipline, lunacy and sincerity…”
—The New Yorker

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.
