WORLD PREMIERE OF THE PRINCIPLES OF UNCERTAINTY
Presented by Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival

- Deborah Jowitt
WORLD PREMIERE OF LOLA
Presented by The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts
February 11, 2017
"While the title of this collaboration with the NSO and Joshua Bell, to Édouard Lalo's Symphonie Espagnole for violin and orchestra, mischievously scrambles the composer's vowels, the work itself shines, its choreography clear, exuberant, and seductive. "

FANTASQUE PREMIERES AT BARD SUMMERSCAPE
Presented by Bard SummerScape at the Fisher Center for the Performing Arts
July 1, 2016
"The puppet scenes were minimal, largely silent, and spiked with pauses so well placed that they prompted gratifying streams of association. The vivid dances featured their own sly indirections but without missing a beat. Between the two, a magical atmosphere arose."
- Apollinaire Scherr

The Joyce Theater, New York, NY

Inside John Heginbotham's Snapchat-like Creative Process

No Vanity Project: Baryshnikov Tells Artists, 'You're The Boss'
September 28, 2015
"Heginbotham says this creative laboratory is really a gift from Baryshnikov to other artists: 'He could've just been a great ballet dancer, but he is such a curious and investigative person that he has taken that and put it into creating work and helping other people create work. He betters himself all the time and he encourages us to do that too.'"
