Choreography by John Heginbotham
For their BAM debut, Heginbotham and company present Dark Theater, a brand new work inspired by Dadaist painter Francis Picabias provocative 1924 ballet Relāche, 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.
