AirDance New Mexico launches two new performances this weekend

AirDance New Mexico takes theater to the sky through aerial dance performances. Their newest is titled Entomography.

The video unfolds like this: A white plastic broom with stiff yellow bristles is poised in the lower frame of the camera and ahead is massive brown Wolf Spider, unassumingly chilling on the terra cotta tiles of YouTube user “That Broom's” house. (I'm assuming it is That Broom's house; this video, after all, is billed in all caps as THE ORIGINAL version.) The camera advances as does the broom, the spider coming in to sharper focus. If you're like me, that is, the kind of person that catches everything from crickets to cockroaches in jars and takes them outside to safety, then this next part is hard to watch. The broom descends with fury, smashing the poor spider. But in a Charlotte's Web-esque turn of events, when the broom is lifted, hundreds (thousands?) of tiny, baby spiders explode outwards across the tile from the center point of their writhing mother's body. The broom holder frantically tries to sweep up the tiny black specks, but they are a small army. It's like instant karma if you're team spider.
