Enjoyed the strength and good technique shown by the performers as well as the use of apparatus--to me it was a new experience seeing this. I had never been to the Marsh and thought it was a good venue as every seat was a "good" one. Not able to stay for the talk afterwards, but would have enjoyed hearing the feedback from the audience as well as what the choreographer and dancers had to say about the process and ideas for this piece.
Quotes & Highlights
“A wonder of equilibrium.” —New York Times
Flyaway Productions performs apparatus-based dances that expose the range and power of female physicality. Founded in 1996, the company’s performances integrate risk, spectacle and social potency. The dances build on physical athleticism and images of female power. The company performs in both traditional and site-specific venues, including rooftops, fire escapes and industrial cranes. Flyaway has performed at the Boston Dance Umbrella’s International Aerial Festival, San Francisco’s Skydancers Festival, the Aerial Dance Festival in Colorado and locally at Brava Theater Center, Theater Artaud, and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
