Treeline Dance Works


A Thousand Faces Within (2013)

is inspired by Joseph Campbell’s The Hero with a Thousand Faces, a literary work that examines the fundamental structure of myth and the journey of the archetypal hero. The work physicalizes Campbell’s notion of the monomyth, or simply put, the stages that comprise the hero’s tale. These stages include: Departure (the quest’s calling), Initiation (the journey itself) and Return (re-entry to the ordinary world). The dance unfolds alongside three 4-foot moveable wheat fields that define the “place” within the journey. (Cast of 7)
