The aerial loop threaded through 2 pulleys has many different configurations, each with their own possibilities for interaction. The apparatus is by nature a partnered form, as there is no inherently fixed point, and everything that occurs on one side must be counterbalanced on the opposite side. With a small group of aerialists, we will explore several modes of operation for this apparatus. Time permitting, we’ll research new concepts with this apparatus. With the ensemble of artists who will undertake this workshop together, we will build a short presentation of the skills explored in this workshop.
