The Principles of Uncertainty
September 27 @ 7:30 pm| $25
Over the course of a year, author and illustrator Maira Kalman kept an online graphic diary for The New York Times called The Principles of Uncertainty. The entries are colorful, perceptive musings on the passage of time and its relation to the seemingly mundane objects and experiences that make up our daily lives. In this imaginative dance theater work, John Heginbotham brings Kalman’s intimate, detailed work to life in a series of vignettes that illustrate a journey through an ever-changing world. An array of vocabularies including dance, text, music, and projected images work in concert to tell a story that hovers between fantasy and reality. Set to an original score composed, arranged, and curated by Brooklyn Rider and Silk Road Ensemble’s Colin Jacobsen, the work also features members of Jacobsen’s chamber orchestra, The Knights; actor Daniel Pettrow; and Kalman herself.
