ter-mi-nus: an intersection; a convergence of art, ideals, and energy; unofficial
original name of Atlanta.
Terminus Modern Ballet Theatre presents an evening of neo-classical ballet inspired
by the legends of Greek mythology. An Atlanta premiere, Under the Olive Tree first premiered with New Orleans Ballet Theater in 2016. Called “stark”, “striking”,
and “sensual” by the Miami Herald, Tara Lee’s fluid choreography captures the personalities
of the Greek gods and goddesses and their fated stories. Horizons by Heath Gill premiered at Terminus’ outdoor performance home, Serenbe, and will
be uniquely adapted for a traditional indoor theater. The dance work is inspired by
the tale of Icarus and the “dramatic and gorgeous” lighting complements Gill’s storytelling
and athletic movement style.
