Dance Heginbotham 24 Caprices
This event took place on April 30, 2021. Thank you to everyone who was able to join us!
We presented the world premiere of the newest installment of 24 Caprices and viewed a selection of dances from the series. The evening included a Q&A with John Heginbotham, Artistic Director of Dance Heginbotham, company dancer and Purchase alum Courtney Lopes, violinist Colin Jacobsen, and video editor Maile Okamura, moderated by Nelly Van Bommel, Director, Conservatory of Dance, Purchase College SUNY.
24 Caprices is an ambitious virtual dance-on-film project. Collaborating with violinist Colin Jacobsen, who The Washington Post called one of the most interesting figures on the classical music scene, John Heginbotham and his team of dancers and guest artists explore the eclectic, delightful, dark, and melancholic turns of Paganini’s Caprices.
The series consists of 24 miniature dances, filmed throughout New York City. Each is a captivating jewel, rhythmically intricate and varied in range, capturing a moment in this unprecedented time.
