WHAT: This workshop is for aerialists with some experience who want to broaden their boundaries and identify habits, assumptions and expectations in their artistic practice. We will work towards creating a coherent, thinking body by building awareness using techniques and skills collected through research and experience. We will integrate transitions and “tricks” into sequences to become better technicians and performing artists, being mindful of the question, “what are we choosing/drawing on and why?”
