Dance Heginbotham | July 22⁠—26

World Premiere | Pillow Commission

John Heginbotham is lauded for striking choreography that is perceptive, bright, athletic, and witty. His company has established itself as one of the most adventurous companies in the contemporary dance scene.

John Heginbotham is praised by The New York Times as having “a true theater artist’s instinct for commanding his audience.” A past recipient of the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Award, he is most recently acclaimed for his choreography in the Tony-winning Broadway revival of Oklahoma!

The company performs Easy Win, a collaboration with jazz pianist and composer Ethan Iverson that draws inspiration from the collaborators’ shared experiences with formal ballet class. A delightful ode to the repetition, drama, humor of a dance class, Easy Win dissects its rituals with equal amounts of humor and sincerity through dancers that  are “keenly alive to the main pulses of Mr. Iverson’s music” (The New York Times).

In the world premiere of Dance Sonata, Heginbotham and Iverson continue their collaboration. This Pillow-commissioned work captures the unique interplay of dancers and musicians in a performance.
