John Heginbotham, who directs the Dartmouth Dance Ensemble and choreographed the Tony Award-winning Broadway production of Oklahoma, and his company Dance Heginbotham will make their Hopkins Center for the Arts debut Wednesday, performing a Hop-commissioned new work. 

The eight-member Dance Heginbotham brings its celebrated athleticism, humor, and theatricality to live music by the 22-member new music band Alarm Will Sound (“original, vivid, reckless,” said the Los Angeles Times). The evening includes new Heginbotham choreography to selections from AWS’s new CD Acoustica as well as his Hop-commissioned new choreography for composer Tyondai Braxton’s chamber work Common Fate.

Earlier in the evening there will be a conversation between Heginbotham and Braxton about their long artistic partnership and the origins and development of Common Fate. The conversation begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Top of the Hop; it is free and open to the public.
