Coming Soon: THE MAIDEN BY The Nerve Tank

Persephone takes a dive. Hades drops some knowledge. Beats are laid. Drinks are drunk. It’s all Greek to us. 

Join The Nerve Tank and composer Admiral Grey for The Maiden, a contemporary reboot of the abduction myth. What does it mean to find yourself in unlikely places? Can power be given or must it be seized from sinister sources? Does pure performance make its own kind of meaning? 

The Maiden explores these questions and more in the context of a trailer park nightclub. We blend found text, choreographed movement, and live music to rip into a kidnapped psyche. And as the lady reaches the point of no return, her man loses all semblance of control.
