Scorpius Dance Theatre Brings Back Popular Show ANIMAL
By Holly Harmon - Tuesday Apr 09, 2024
Scorpius Dance Theatre is excited to bring back one of its most popular and acclaimed productions, “ANIMAL,” which will be presented at the Herberger Theater Center from April 11-13. An original show created by Scorpius' Director, Lisa Starry, it is inspired by her love of animals and passion for their well-being. “ANIMAL” explores the relationship we have with living creatures, as well as their social interactions, physicality, and movement.

Overall, a lighthearted and entertaining show, Starry is also taking the opportunity to provide awareness and support for animals in our community and globally. She is an active supporter of the fostering and adoption of pets, as well as global organizations working to end animal abuse. Audiences will be fascinated, entertained, and enlightened by “ANIMAL.”

“ANIMAL” features nine different dance works, comedic interludes, and two short films. From the unusual mating ritual of the praying mantis, the slumbering ways of the sloth, the slinky movement of snakes, to the social interactions of dogs, Scorpius’ dancers will use their athleticism, grace, and acting abilities to emulate the motion and behaviors of various domestic pets and wild animals.

A heartwarming display of our love for animals, one short film will feature pet owners interacting with their pets and the special bonds they share. A more serious film, coupled with live dance, will bring to light the emotional distress of caged and confined animals.

“ANIMAL” is presented on April 11 at 7:30 p.m., April 12 at 7:30 p.m. and April 13 at 2 and 7:30 p.m. Herberger Theater Center is located at 222 E. Monroe St., Phoenix, Ariz., 85004. Tickets are $30, plus service fees and can be purchased by calling 602-252-8497 or visiting
