On-going classes from May 2017-July 2017
May 9th 11am-1pm
Tuesday May 9, 11-1: Evoke, Provoke, Suggest (Fabric theory and Partnering)
This class is for the curious aerialist with some experience who want to broaden boundaries and identify habits, assumptions and expectations in their artistic practice. We will work collaboratively towards creating a coherent, thinking body by building awareness using techniques and skills collected through research and experience. We will integrate transitions and skills into sequences to become better technicians and performing artists, being mindful of the question, “What are we choosing/drawing on and why?”
Pre-req: Be able to invert in air repeatedly, execute a clean hip key and know two ways to get into an S-wrap. We ask that you come with an open mind and available body and one skill or idea that you would like to build into a collective sequence.
Friday May 12, 3-5: Reinventing The Apparatus (vertical apparatus)
This class is geared towards aerialists who wants to explore how things work. We will deconstruct wraps and design ways of using landmarks as jumping-off points to explore points of entry and exit. We will also examine how skills and theories interact and transfer between the apparatus and body.
Pre-req: Working knowledge of S-wrap and Hip Key. Be able to invert in the air repeatedly.
