About

Jacob’s Pillow Dance Award-winner John Heginbotham and acclaimed illustrator Maira Kalman join forces for the world premiere of The Principles of Uncertainty. Imaginative set design meets whimsical dance theatre, promising a delightful evening full of wit and charm.

Co-commissioned by the Pillow and the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and developed during multiple Pillow Creative Development Residencies, The Principles of Uncertainty is an evening-length dance theatre work choreographed and directed by Heginbotham, inspired by Kalman’s written and visual art, set to an original score composed, arranged, and curated by Brooklyn Rider and Silk Road Ensemble’s Colin Jacobsen. Members of The Knights, Jacobsen’s innovative chamber orchestra, will perform live.
