FACETS, A JOURNEY OF REFLECTIONS: It is often said that planning shows for junior high schools is problematic because of their varying levels of sophistication, their perceived needs, peer group pressure and the like. However, Sun.Ergos has put a show together that is based directly on curricula that witness the many facets of the teen-age experience. Indian legends reach out to the imaginations of Grade 7s; the physical expression and athleticism of dance challenges Grade 8s; emotional excerpts from Shakespeare’s MACBETH provide Grade 9s with a living look at this classic; and tales from Southeast Asia evoke other cultures that make up the multicultural heritage of North America. FACETS is a suite of reflections that takes teenagers on a journey into their own consciousness and growing awareness of the world around them and, perhaps, introduce them to ones about which surprise them.
Performed in three-quarter thrust staging
Sun.Ergos has built up in recent years an established international reputation for its highly innovative, tightly-disciplined, and singularly distinctive repertoire of dance and dramatic creations.
