Hero

Photo: Cerier

In the premiere of Hero, twelve dancers in gold, orange, and green jumpsuits moved around the edges of the space, framing the central movements of the three soloists: Wendell Beavers, Nina Martin, and Mary Overlie/Joanne Tilleman. The trio was wearing soft blue and lavender costumes. Overlie, who choreographed the dance performance, alternated still and energetic moves, creating a synergy between the dancers in the middle and the ones in the back space. It was originally meant to be performed with an new score by Laurie Anderson, but the piece was not ready by the time Hero premiered, so Overlie's work was staged in silence.
