 Written by Laura Bess Jernigan

Co-Directed by Jo Bunnell-Thompson and Kaitlin Argeaux

Movement by Justyna Ziarek

 “Every choice has a cost...”

Long ago the gypsies were visited by Hero, and each year since they come together to celebrate and tell her tale - so that it may never be forgotten...
So come in! Gather round on this All Hero's Eve! Hear the legend of the HERO...and what happened to her after she saved the world.

 Using movement, dance, and live music, we spin a mythical tale of adventure and sacrifice – exploring what it means to be a HERO.
