Aeriosa returns to the UBC Botanical Garden

The Greenheart Canopy Walkway is pleased to present Aeriosa at UBC Botanical Garden. This unique performance by the captivating vertical dance group, Aeriosa, incorporates a captivating fusion of rock-climbing skill and contemporary dance movement set to music. Enjoy the performanace perched on viewing platforms high in the treetops while exploring Vancouver’s most exciting eco-adventure, the Greenheart Canopy Walkway.

The talented dancers will explore movement three dimensionally in space with both horizontal and vertical movements made possible by their special rigging set up in the trees. The experience will shift your perspective as it combines art, nature and community in one spectacular show.

Dancing with the Grand Firs

This creative process is about forming a relationship with living trees, learning to negotiate movement in a duet with another species, contemplating a different sense of time, place and way of being in the world. The movement vocabulary and choreography will be unearthed as we take time to experience the cycles of  the ecosystem. Our task will be to draw out stories that are written into the forest to illuminate the delicate balance that exists between humanity and all other life on earth.
