The aerial cube...oh the possibilities! Join Sarah Dawn and Cressie Mae, who have spent over six years researching and performing solo and duo material on this apparatus, for an afternoon of workshops exploring the fun and novel world of the aerial cube. They have quite a bit of exciting material they want to share with you, and you get a chance to work on one of the most unique aerial apparatus around! We will have TWO shiny cubes hanging for you to use, and are offering workshops on both solo and duo material!
11:00-12:30 Solo Cube
In this workshop, we will explore entrances and exits, transitions, poses, sequences, spinning, and even some drops. Ability to knee hang and invert in the air helpful, prior aerial experience and basic terminology (straddle up, birds nest) strongly suggested.
12:45-2:15 Duo Cube
The aerial cube is a great apparatus to start exploring partner work! Come alone or bring a friend. We will explore some partner balancing, shapes, sequences, and basing/flying that will result in lots of fun and some beautiful images in the air! Ability to knee hang and invert in the air helpful, prior aerial experience and basic terminology (straddle up, birds nest) strongly suggested. No prior partner experience required.
A SHIBARI SUSPENSION EXPERIENCE FOR CIRCUS ARTISTS
Hey Boulder/Denver circus artists, do I have a special opportunity for you! If you’ve ever been curious about shibari - the Japanese art of rope bondage and suspension - but never knew how to find our more or give it a try, wait no longer! In conjunction with Studio Friction and RopesInspireMe, I’m super excited to host ‘Cirque-Bari’, an opportunity for circus artists to learn the ropes (ha!) about being suspended, and then actually get to fly with one of several trusted riggers in a safe, respectful environment. Head on over to Studio Frictions’ website, www.StudioFriction.com, to find out more information about shibari and to sign up, and please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions/concerns/comments. Hope to see you in the air in a whole new way!!
