First off, I’ve been nominated to be part of an ongoing Calotype photographic portfolio project titled “Vancouver Creatives”. A Calotype is a photographic process that uses eco-friendly photochemistry with a massive 1920s 8×10 camera system purposed to deliver authentic and vibrant historical portraits. I am a candidate in the Healthy Living/Yoga category and could be one of the 20 Vancouverites to represent Vancouver talent in this community portfolio:
And… Aeriosa is off to work on a residency at The Banff Arts Centre and then to Revelstoke…winter, here I come. We are offering Aeriosa workshops, discussions and a performance.
Talkback Event – Saturday, Feb 1st, 7:30pm
Performance – Saturday, Feb 8th, 7:30pm
During Spirit Fest, the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre will play host to Aeriosa Dance Society. This aerial dance company has a reputation for creating unexpected experiences of dance. While in Revelstoke, the group will develop an original aerial dance performance based on the space and contours of our performing arts centre. By dancing in non-traditional environments such as hallways and on skyscrapers while incorporating unusual performance scenarios, audiences are literally swept up in the beauty of acrobatic dance.
A week before the performance, you will have the opportunity to go behind the scenes and explore the ‘making of’ a site-specific dance show during their talk-back session. In addition, they will offer workshops and other educational activities in dance to the community.
Tickets $15 for both events available from the Chamber of Commerce and ArtFirst! in downtown Revelstoke and online. Workshops details TBA.
