Terpsicorps Theatre of Dance's summer show is the one-weekend-only Many Deaths of Edward Gorey, and Other Moments of Eccentricity
. The Gorey part of the performance was first staged in 2007 and tells, in macabre-tinged costume and movement, the tale of the American writer and illustrator known for works like The Gashlycrumb Tinies
. Gorey was also passionate about ballet, making Terpsicorps' quirky, dark tribute all that much more poignant. The 2012 version has been lengthened by three scenes with additional characters. The program also includes Couch Potatoes
, also choreographed by Terpsicorps Artistic Director Heather Malloy; athletic dance Half Past Never
by Chris Bandy and Maloy's pas de deux, Calm
. Thursday-Sunday, June 28-30 at Diana Wortham Theatre. 8 p.m. nightly. $30, $28 for seniors, $25 for students, $20 for teens and $12 for children. Thursday is Gala Night: A $75 ticket includes a pre-show Champagne toast at 7 p.m. and an afterparty at the Battery Park Book Exchange & Champagne Bar. http://www.dwtheatre.com.
