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.”

So much can happen in one week. So much can change.

During Easter weekend Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre (GHDT) will portray the monumental events that marked one week — the last week of Jesus Christ’s life — in SUPERHERO: the story of a man called Jesus.

Back for the third consecutive year by popular demand, 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. Performances are scheduled for 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Mar. 25-26, 2016 at The Tarkington, 3 Center Green, Carmel, Indiana.

With world class dancers, award winning choreography, vivid costuming, and contemporary music, 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.

A particularly striking feature of the performance is the original set design utilizing texts from the Gospels written in Greek, Latin, Aramaic and English, reinforcing the feeling of a tale belonging in any time and any place.

SUPERHERO features talented guest artists James Gilmer as Jesus and Liang Fu as Judas Iscariot, as well as GHDT company dancers Sarah Sigman as Mother Mary and Hannah Brown as Mary Magdalene.

Considered one of GHDT’s signature works, SUPERHERO has been described as a “whirl of energy . . .through color, light, movement, and sound” and is a timeless retelling of the story of a man who changed history and the world around him forever.

Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre is the resident professional dance company at The Tarkington at The Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel, Indiana.
