Swings Asunder is Sky Candy's newest aerial theatre production opening at the Rollins Theater in July 2015. Using elements of modern dance, aerial and acrobatics the show is an avant garde exploration of social rituals, the development and dissolution of gender roles and identity, and ultimately our outlook on our lives and what we are capable of. This three weekend workshop will include learning and creating choreography and participants can expect to work with movement tools including contact improvisation, aerial arts, ground acrobatics, modern dance, theatre-based improvisation and more. The end goal of the workshop is to create a 20-30 minute presentation on January 31st for audience feedback on this new work. People who are interested should have some movement experience and can be dancers, aerialists, acrobats, actors and others. We do not specifically require that you have circus or aerial experience to take part in the workshop. (UPDATED!) The workshop dates are: Saturday, January 17 3 - 6pm Saturday, January 24 4:30 - 7:30pm Saturday, January 31 4:30 - 7:30pm (UPDATED!) The workshop presentation is: Saturday, February 7 6pm - 8pm (we may have as early as a 4pm call time for a run-thru) The first workshop is open to everyone!
