Performers explore the winds of change, moving from one realm to another through the portal of the aerial cube. Some find freedom and joy in the air, while others find themselves trapped by a trapeze or a hoop. Fabric intertwines and reshapes, mirroring ever-changing relationships and fates. Featuring performers Amy Bourque, Christina Cavaleri, Diana Delgado, Kaitlin Frady, Joanna Furgal, Dara Minkin, Zachary Sears, Tasha Williams, and composer Monica Demarco performing her original music live.

Upward mobility

One of the coolest things I’ve seen on an awards show was a few years ago when Pink did a fabric aerial dance while singing “Glitter in the Air.” You can see that graceful art form in person starting Friday, Nov. 8, when AirDance New Mexico presents Whichever Way the Wind Blows at the AirDance ArtSpace (3030 Isleta SW). The show embodies how the winds of change push and pull us, spin us and transport us from one experience to another. In addition to aerial fabric dance, performers will show off their trapeze, hammock and hoop skills, and unveil a new custom-made aerial cube (yep—I’m intrigued). More than just performers, the dancers collaborated to create the show under the direction of Debra Landau. The result: Choreography, creativity and crazy skills intertwine for an extraordinary aerial dance theater experience. That thrill could have you, too, dancing on air. Tickets run just $10 to $15, so catch the show before it breezes by—Friday and Saturday at 8pm, Sunday at 2pm. See airdance.org for more. (Kristi D. Lawrence)
