GO! Contemporary Dance Works will present The Search for Persephone, a Mythological Ballet, one of the company’s most beloved and enduring full-length contemporary ballets, streaming LIVE from the historic Bijou Theatre, on Saturday, February 20th at 7 PM. Artistic Director Lisa Hall McKee, GO!’s team of seven choreographers and 55 pre-professional and professional dancers will bring to life the captivating myth of the springtime goddess Persephone and her abduction by Hades, king of the underworld.
Traveling from the goddess’ capture to her celebratory return, The Search for Persephone will be visually stunning with elaborate sets, costuming, and choreography that will incorporate ballet, contemporary and aerial dance in the telling of the story. Throughout this two hour performance, the audience will meet Gaea and Uranus at the world’s formation, fly with the nymphs in Artemis’s forest, dive into the aquatic world of Amphitrite, and seep down deep with the creatures and fates of the dark underworld.“
Live-streamed on February 20th at 7 PM, The Search for Persephone will be available for viewing until March 8th. Subscribers will receive a streaming link upon ticket purchase prior to the performance. Tickets go on sale Monday, January 18th; packages begin at $20 and are available at gocontemporarydanceworks.veeps.com. For more information, please visit gocontemporarydance.com.
