Dance Heginbotham at Baryshnikov Arts Center
Baryshnikov Arts Center presents the World Premiere of Dance Heginbotham’s HERZ SCHMERZ, October 10-12, 2019
Following their 2017 collaborative debut The Principles of Uncertainty, choreographer John Heginbotham and artist/writer Maira Kalman co-conceive a new dance-play, HERZ SCHMERZ. Early 20th-century Swiss author Robert Walser’s witty writings inspire an eccentric and hyper-detailed landscape of movement, text, visual design, and live chamber music, creating an impressionistic observatory of life's beautiful minutiae and most important themes.
Conceived by John Heginbotham and Maira Kalman, with choreography by Heginbotham and design by Kalman. Performed by David Barlow, Maira Kalman, Maile Okamura, and Daniel Pettrow. Text by Robert Walser. Music by Hans Huber. Lighting design by Nicole Pearce.
