HERO

September 7-9, 2018
SOULSKIN Presents HERO
Friday-Saturday 8pm, Sunday 5:30pm

Tickets: $20 in advance and $25 at the door: Advanced tix available at Logo for Brown Paper Tickets, link to purchase tickets. or by calling 1-800-838-3006

With spoken word by LA-based writer, performer and movement artist Lilly Bright and choreography by Artistic Director Adrianna Thompson and collaborator/guest artist Sebastien Thill (Paris Opera Ballet), HERO features a young woman who unexpectedly receives a message from faraway; a doorway mysteriously reveals itself. An odyssey of the individual merging with the universal (and vice versa) is the parallel realm that envelops her, testing her fortitude through longing and love, struggle and salvation, loss and remembrance. At once mystical and mundane, HERO explores the multitude of roles the hero plays in our everyday, extra-ordinary lives.

"HERO is a politically themed ballet that poses the question: What defines a hero," says SOULSKIN Dance’s Artistic Director, Adrianna Thompson. "In today’s society there are everyday heroes; those who speak out against atrocities like gun violence to make the world a better place. HERO seeks to understand the different ways that one can be a hero".
