Well-known for his 14-year tenure as a dancer with Mark Morris Dance Group, Artistic Director John Heginbotham creates work known for its “tight formal structure and inventive movement, bolstered by a disarming wit and strangeness” (The New Yorker). Founded in 2011, Dance Heginbotham has quickly established itself as one of the most adventurous and exciting new companies on the contemporary dance scene, and is celebrated for its vibrant athleticism, humor, and theatricality, as well as its commitment to collaboration. The company has shared the stage with music icons including Alarm Will Sound, Brooklyn Rider, Gabriel Kahane and Shara Nova, and members of The Knights orchestra.

Musicians:
Ethan Iverson, composer/pianist: Easy Win
Verona Quartet
Jerome Mouffe, guitar
Yosi Karahashi, flamenco artist

Seating for this engagement is limited. This engagement is not eligible for group discounts.

“[Heginbotham has] a true theater artist’s instinct for commanding his audience.”
