A-WOL to open aerial dance in trees
A-WOL Dance Collective will be back among the trees at Mary S. Young Park for its annual aerial summer show Art in the Dark running Aug. 4-13.
This year's production, titled "One Shy of Ten: The Intangible Dimension," has been described as "intriguing, eerie and mysterious" and features the professional aerialists performing suspended in the trees, surrounded by darkness, and soaring into another dimension.
A-WOL promises to lead audiences down a path into the absurd, the unbelievable and the incredible. Inspired by 1960s black and white science fiction television shows, dancers will weave through four storylines rich with mystery, suspense and quirkiness to delight audiences of all ages. Think you've got it figured out? Watch out (and up!) for the twists on the trapeze, flips on the fabric, pivots on the poles, swings on the chandeliers and careening of the chairs that might leave you second-guessing what is real and what is not.
Art in the Dark is an illuminated, full-length production set in a unique outdoor theater.
Performances are set for 8:30 p.m. Aug. 4, 5, 6, 10, 11, 12 and 13. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. under the trees at Mary S. Young Park, 19900 Willamette Drive, West Linn. Tickets range in price from $15 to $36 and can be purchased online at awoldance.org or by calling 503-351-5182.
