Scorpius Dance Theatre presents ‘david+lisa’ at The Pavilion at the Herberger Theater
April 8-10, 7:30 pm
Back by Popular Demand! An Unusual Love Story … David+Lisa.
David+Lisa is an intense fairy-tale of sorts that tells of two people who meet in a treatment center of young adults with mental and psychological issues. After a series of events an unlikely attachment is developed between the volatile individuals. David+Lisa is inspired by the fact-based stage play and 1960s film. Scorpius is the first to abstract this story into the realm of contemporary dance and original music by Kristofer Hill and Ryan Breen,
The Herberger Theater Center (HTC) build a new outdoor stage, The Pavilion at the Herberger Theater.
Built on the recently cleared land on the east side on the theater, The Pavilion will host performances through April 2021.
“The opening of The Pavilion outdoor stage is about hope and giving an opportunity for companies to meet their audiences in a new way,” said Mark Mettes, President and CEO of the Herberger Theater. “We have heard from our guests that digital offerings are just not the same. We want to answer the call and provide a live arts experience for the community. These outdoor performances are about being together, yet safely apart, in order to experience performances in a safe and socially distanced way.”
A generous donation from Arizona Artificial Lawns will allow HTC to install turf to prepare a more welcoming outdoor space for guests. At its current capacity, the stage will seat approximately 160 guests, who will follow social distancing guidelines. As restrictions loosen, the space could accommodate more than 300 guests.
With generous donations from Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust, Billie Jo and Judd Herberger, Perkins Coie, the Arizona Community Foundation and Downtown Phoenix Partnership, HTC can focus on bringing audiences and art back together at the Herberger Theater, where audience meets art.
Events may be viewed in these formats: list, week, day, map, photo and month.
