THE PRINCIPLES OF UNCERTAINTY is a new evening-length dance theater work created by collaborators John Heginbotham and Maira Kalman. The work draws inspiration from the highly detailed, intimate worlds created in Maira’s paintings and illustrations, particularly from her book, THE PRINCIPLES OF UNCERTAINTY (2009). A central theme of the work is a human’s experience as a temporary participant in an ever-changing world. These ideas and themes are explored through a series of vignettes that are woven through with John’s rich choreography and Maira’s design elements. An array of eclectic vocabularies – dance, text, music, and projected images – work in concert to tell the story. The intention is that THE PRINCIPLES OF UNCERTAINTY behaves as a welcoming, non-linear, occasionally absurd travelogue.
