Summer Youth Arts Programs
Coming in 2014, Greek Mythology meets The Hunger Games in SUPERHUMAN HAPPINESS!
SUPERHUMAN HAPPINESS is an original musical theater production that adapts Ovid’s Metamorphosis to explore contemporary concepts of shape-shifting and makeover. Ovid’s wonder-tales of myths and fantastic legends create a source book of imagery that compliments our digital world of invention, flux and disguise. The result is an update of the classic story as youth investigate the “hows” and “whys” of personal change.
SUPERHUMAN HAPPINESS combines dance, theater, music and tableaux to tell cinematic stories of mischief and cleverness. It is adapted for the stage by John Fleming with original music by Ellen Maddow from The Talking Band Theater of New York ( http://talkingband.org/our-team/ellen-maddow/ ) and visual effects by award winning Ohio artist Curtis Goldstein (http://curtisgoldstein.blogspot.com/).
Some are transformed just once
And live their whole lives after in that shape.
Others have a facility
For changing themselves as they please.
