Scorpius Dance Theatre Presents ANIMAL

My Local News Arizona - Advertisement

From February 7-8 at 7:30 p.m., Scorpius Dance Theatre brings back its popular production, ANIMAL. An original show created by Scorpius’ Director, Lisa Starry, it is inspired by her love of animals and passion for their well-being. The show explores the relationship we have with animals, as well as their social interactions, physicality and movement. Overall, a lighthearted and entertaining production, Starry is also taking the opportunity to provide awareness and support for animals in our community and globally.
“I’m an active supporter of the fostering and adoption of pets, as well as global organizations working to end animal abuse. To bring awareness to these issues, I hope audiences will be fascinated, entertained and enlightened by ANIMAL,” said Starry. 
ANIMAL will feature nine different dance works, comedic interludes, and two short films. From the unusual mating ritual of the praying mantis, the slumbering ways of the sloth, the slinky movement of snakes, to the social interactions of dogs, Scorpius’ dancers will use their athleticism, grace, and acting abilities to emulate the motion and behaviors of various domestic pets and wild animals.
A heartwarming display of our love for animals, one short film will feature pet owners interacting with their companions and the special bonds they share. A more serious film, coupled with live dance, will bring to light the emotional distress of caged and confined animals. Attendees of ANIMAL will also be treated to a visual arts display in the lobby, featuring original animal drawings by a young, up-and-coming artist, Mariana Torres.
ANIMAL is February 7-8 at 7:30 p.m., and is being held at The Madison Center for the Performing Arts: 5606 N. 16th St., Phoenix, AZ 85016. Tickets range from $21 to $36, plus service fees. To purchase tickets, call the Madison Center at 602-664-7777 or visit
