A story of betrayal, trust, sacrifice and great love, SUPERHERO; the story of a man called Jesus is masterfully set to modern music and movement and is an emotional roller coaster from the first pulsating rhythms to the final sweeping notes. With world-class dancers, choreography and costumes, Artistic Director Gregory Hancock skillfully draws audiences into the poignant emotion of Jesus’s story, while evoking the universality of Jesus’s message and teachings.
SUPERHERO; the story of a man called Jesus is considered one of GHDT’s signature works and has been lauded as “exquisite”, “captivating from start to finish,” and “a most moving portrayal of The Passion.”
