The Seven Voyages of Sinbad
May 15 - 18 at St. Lawrence Arts Center. Vivid Motion presents The Seven Voyages of Sinbad, a dance show of original choreography, telling one of the most treasured tales of the 1,001 Arabian Nights.
This epic story follows the voyages of a young Persian sailor who leaves dry land to sail the seas in search of treasure and glory; along the way encountering magical beasts, bloodthirsty pirates, and a variety of supernatural phenomena.
Our story begins in a marketplace of Basrah, a city in Ancient Persia. As a poor young porter notices a rich merchant, he complains about all the injustices of the world and how the merchant has so much wealth while the porter has nothing at all. The merchant calls the porter to him, explains that his name is Sinbad, and then begins to tell the tale of how he came to gain so much wealth over the course of seven fantastical voyages.
Recognized in southern Maine for their innovation, the choreographers and dancers of Vivid Motion transform their bodies into the characters, creatures, objects, and landscape of Sinbad's world. Sword fights, combat, elaborate costumes, puppetry and dance bring Sinbad's wild and magical world to life.
Bring the whole family! This is a show everyone can enjoy!
