Usdan Artists in Residence in Collaboration with Dance Heginbotham
In an ambitious new virtual dance on film project, Dance Heginbotham (DH) is collaborating with Usdan Artists in Residence Colin Jacobsen and Maile Okamura.
DH founder John Heginbotham, his team of dancers, and some surprise guest artists explore the eclectic, delightful, dark and melancholic turns of Niccolò Paganini's 24 Caprices for Solo Violin. Creating 24 miniature dances on film, each caprice is a captivating jewel, rhythmically intricate and varied in range, capturing a moment in this unprecedented time.
On February 23, DH shared the world premiere of the newest installments of 24 Caprices at a virtual watch party hosted by The Hop at Dartmouth College. Caprice 6 was filmed on Usdan's wooded campus in the summer of 2020 and performed by Colin (violin) and Maile (dance).
We hope you enjoy this captivating piece that enlivened our sleeping campus last summer.
