Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre presents SUPERHERO; a story of a man called Jesus at The Tarkington (in the Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre building) at The Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel, Indiana, April 14-15, 2017.
Back by popular demand for the fourth consecutive year and now becoming an annual Holy Week tradition, Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre’s SUPERHERO; the story of a man called Jesus is an experience of unprecedented emotion and is the must ‘see of the season.
This critically acclaimed, full-length modern ballet brings to life the struggles of Jesus Christ and the women surrounding him, as well as his complicated relationship with Judas Iscariot.
A story of betrayal, trust, sacrifice and great love, SUPERHERO; the story of a man called Jesus is masterfully set to modern music and movement and is an emotional roller coaster from the first pulsating rhythms to the final sweeping notes.
With world-class dancers, choreography and costumes, Artistic Director Gregory Hancock skillfully draws audiences into the poignant emotion of Jesus’s story, while evoking the universality of Jesus’s message and teachings.
SUPERHERO; the story of a man called Jesus is considered one of GHDT’s signature works and has been lauded as “exquisite,” “captivating from start to finish,” and “a most moving portrayal of The Passion.”
