New Aerial Dance Show Soars with the Birds!
Frequent Flyers® Aerial Dance presents "The Bird House" at the Dairy Center for the Arts
Company member Kim Townsend says "It’s exciting to create a brand new show this Spring. It has really allowed us to stretch our imaginary wings and come up with completely new concepts and characters. I think it will showcase how Frequent Flyers has grown and offer something fresh for our audiences."
The Bird House explores the concept of being caged versus free, and the sense of home versus migrating. Sourcing from literature, mythology, scientific writing, and adages about birds, the performance showcases our aerial dancers in flight, perching, flocking and nesting. The performance takes the audience on a migratory flight path to their own perceptions of winged creatures. Thought provoking, beautiful, and sublime.
"Birds have been the subject of myth, nightmares, poetry, song and dance for eons. They are often food, harbingers of joy, or portents of bad tidings. As aerialists we aspire to their hollow-boned graceful flight. For this show, we're drawing on aspects of our relationships with birds and flight to delight the audience," says Artistic Director, Nancy Smith.
Frequent Flyers® is a non-profit that has been soaring through the skies of Colorado for over 25 years. As Colorado’s pre-eminent aerial dance company, Frequent Flyers continues to promote the magic of aerial dance through performance and education.
