WHAT: This workshop is for aerialists interested in experimental partnering and duo/ensemble work. We will focus on partnering, collaboration, and floor-to-air exits and entrances, using skills and theories borrowed from contact improvisation and movement studies, such as rolling and skipping points of contact, releasing, weight shifts, balance/counterbalance, all in context to your apparatus and partner.
