Castlepoint Realty Partners is taking the traditional concept of a construction worker “topping out” party to a whole new level (no pun intended) by inviting Aeriosa to present a free public performance on the sheer glass and bare concrete skeleton of their amazing building, the L Tower, a 58 story Toronto building designed by well known architect Daniel Liebskind. This unique show will link Aeriosa’s surreal and lofty dance with cellist Liza MeClellan performing selections from Bach’s Suite for Solo Cello down at street level. The show takes place October 10th 2012 at 7 pm at the corner of Yonge Street and Front Street in downtown Toronto. Please help us spread the word about this highest ever Aeriosa dance performance to your friends, colleagues and loved ones living in the Toronto area. Check out this photo of Julia Taffe, performing a dance rope test from the 37th floor while wearing hard hat and boots as befits an active construction site.
Also, have you heard about “A Journey of Dance in Flight”?
Body Narratives Collective, Julia Carr and I (seen above), have been inspired by a youtube video of a skydiving dance in a wind tunnel. Check out this video, its amazing!
We sourced a local training facility Fly Zone and tried their introductory package. We are hooked! Our goal is to learn the basics of dancing with fluidity in a wind tunnel as a first step towards creating an ambitious wind tunnel dance. We are asking for $3,000 to cover the costs of semi-private training sessions with an experienced instructor and 90-minutes each of wind tunnel time. (So far we are at $515 and have 45 days to go)
The Rocket Hub campaign will run until mid-November. If you know of anyone that would be interested in following our progress, or contributing as a fueler, please forward this link:
Hope to see you from the air soon!
