COLIN: SON, MARINE, HERO

The newly full-length Colin: Son, Marine, Hero, showcasing the story of Artistic Director Amy Grant Wolfe’s son Colin, who lost his life in Iraq to a roadside bomb in 2006, debuted in November 2014 at the Hylton Performing Arts Center.

The original ballet Colin debuted with much acclaim and international media attention as a one-act program in 2013, and this overwhelming response prompted Wolfe to reunite with composer Mark Menza to expand the piece to a full-length ballet. Wolfe began the process of gathering inspiration by interviewing Colin’s commander and fellow Marines during the summer of 2014, adding new layers to the original heart of the story.

“It’s been tough,” Wolfe shared. “I am hearing facts about that day and about his service that I was unaware of until now. It’s a painful journey, but because this ballet is also about Colin’s life as a whole, I am revisiting some sweet memories, too.”

The poignant story came to life through the work of Wolfe, Menza, an expanded cast of 24 dancers, and the largest number of musicians used by MBT for a production at 56.
