Terpsicorps Theatre of Dance is thrilled to be partnering with MANNA and Second Harvest Food Banks to re-stage one of our most popular works. Heather Maloy’s HUNGER, is a work that dares to ask the question, “What do you hunger for?"
Told through vignettes that range from funny to shocking, HUNGER inspires the audience to contemplate the force of their own desires and envision how a need for something as basic as food and water would alter their lives. This part of the performance is the equivalent of PG13, for mild depictions of violence.
Also on the program will be AYT? (Are you there?), a world premiere by Heather Maloy featuring dancers… and their phones. A humorous statement on how technology, and cell phones in particular, inhibits our ability to communicate and appreciate one another, this is bound to become a new Terpsicorps favorite.
To round out the program, Terpsicorps is bringing back a work created in Winston-Salem in 1990 for African American dance icon, Mel Tomlinson, when he was a member on the NC Dance Theatre. Extensions, created by Salvatore Aiello, is a solo that takes an in-depth look at the routines inherent in the life of a dancer. T
