DANCE TALK: In Step with Baryshnikov

  • WHEN: Sunday, July 16 | 2 PM
  • WHERE: The Breman 1440 Spring St NW, Atlanta, GA (18th Street across from the Center for Puppetry Arts)
  • COST: Free (Pre-Registration Requested)
  • For all fans of dance and the visual arts

One of the subjects of Robert Weingarten’s “biographical portraits” in The Breman’s exhibition ICONS, Selections from The Portrait Unbound is Mikhail Baryshnikov.

In a perfect afternoon for visual and performing arts lovers, enjoy Robert Weingarten’s exhibition of biographical portraits, then sit back and enjoy a stimulating conversation between dance company artistic directors John Heginbotham (New York’s Dance Heginbotham) and John Welker (Atlanta’s Terminus Modern Ballet Theatre) as they discuss Heginbotham's work with the legendary dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov and compare notes on the always-on-the-move world of choreography.

During the 2 pm to 3:30 pm program, Welker will serve as moderator as Heginbotham discusses working with Misha (Baryshnikov) and how he as a choreographer creates stories through movement.

During another program segment, Heginbotham will get the audience itself moving with a phrase of movement he choreographed for Baryshnikov.

Q&A will conclude the program.

After the program, enjoy our free Something Special Sunday Presented by Marilyn Ginsberg Eckstein reception featuring baked treats and lemonade, meet fellow audience members and take a look at the ICONS exhibition with curator Tony Casadonte in the gallery to share insights and answer your questions.
