Witness this thrilling collaboration between the award-winning, Manhattan-based contemporary dance company, DANCE HEGINBOTHAM and the stellar Sioux City Symphony as both dancers and musicians share the Orpheum stage!
Be swept away by the MUSIC and mesmerized by the DANCE
Dance Heginbotham brings to Iowa two incredible stunning works set to the orchestra. Angels’ Share and the premiere of a brand new work, choreographed by John Heginbotham himself, uniquely commissioned by the SCSO to celebrate this ground-breaking partnership.
The evening peaks with one of the most exciting orchestral dances in the repertoire, Rachmaninoff’s rousing SYMPHONIC DANCES.
“Watching a new dance by John Heginbotham is like witnessing the introduction of a new language. It seems familiar, for it’s built from bits of our experience, or things we’ve seen before. But he raids the grammar and vocabulary and syntax we know and cobbles together something strange and alluring, leaving us off balance, but pleasingly so.”
