Vertical Dance Masterclass In Venice, Nov 19th & 20th

A Vertical Dance Masterclass for inquisitive minds and bodies
bookings now open

Join us for a 2-day long masterclass at the Vertical Dance Centre in Venice home to Il Posto with Wanda Moretti, Kate Lawrence and Lindsey Butcher.
During this 2 day workshop you will have the opportunity to work intensively with each of the three choreographers individually and collectively. 
Each day will be split into 4 sessions:
3 x 2 hour sessions led each choreographer and 1 x 1 hour session led by all three choreographers collaboratively. 
During the masterclass we will examine aspects of vertical dance technique and vocabulary and explore how to create from this basis individually and in duets, trios and small groups.  Our aim is to nourish and develop your individual creative expression within your vertical dance practice.
This masterclass is aimed at movers, dancers and performers who want to upgrade their knowledge and skill, not for beginners.

Innerhalb von zwei Momenten zentral im Mittelpunkt, im Kern, im Herzen.
In der Zwischenzeit
Doch dagegen. Hingegen alleine. Trotzdem dazwischen wogegen indessen
Darauf darüber darin daneben nahe bei
Mittlerweile seitdem solange zwischenzeitlich indes währenddessen derweil bis dahin

Was passiert zwischen Absprung und Landung? Was liegt im Übergang von einer Bewegung zur anderen – irrwitzig schnell, unglaublich langsam. Verpasst! Gesehen? Der Raum dazwischen als Spielfläche, die Darstellerinnen schwerelos, in der Luft stehend... Und dann ist es vorbei. Können wir das festhalten?

Choreographer, director, and Bay Area performance innovator Joanna Haigood explores issues of race and identity in her performance installation, Between me and the other world, Thursday through Sunday, October 3-6, 2019 at Zaccho Studio in San Francisco.

Between me and the other world is a dynamic exploration of scholar and civil rights leader W.E.B. DuBois' seminal work The Souls of Black Folk. This performance installation has been created in collaboration with composer Anthony Brown, media artist David Szlasa, and scenic designer Sean Riley, and performing artists Frankie Lee III, Lydia Clinton, Clarissa Dyas, and Delvis Friñon. Together, these collaborators have created an immersive environment that evokes the identity duality or double consciousness described by DuBois.

In the performance installation, audiences are welcome to move around the space and view the performance from different vantage points. Performances will loop promptly every 30-minutes on the hour and half hour with performing artists alternating. Audiences may stay for as many performance loops as they like.

Between me and the other world is made possible by generous support from Zellerbach Family Foundation, The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, Surdna Foundation, and San Francisco Grants for the Arts Hotel Tax Fund.
September 21 – November 17
Bolinas Museum

This exhibition celebrates over twenty years of creative collaboration between internationally acclaimed aerial dancer and choreographer Joanna Haigood and master of set and rigging design Wayne Campbell.

November 25-26,
1-3pm. Price: $60

In this specialized class, dancers ages 7 to 15 will learn various turns and leaps from several dance styles such as ballet, jazz, and contemporary. Dance experience is recommended but not required. Everyone is welcome!

TUNE in this Tuesday, September 17 at 9 am for our feature on CBS's We Are Austin with the charming hosts Trevor Scott and Taylor Ellison.
Angela had just moved to Austin in the Summer of 2011 when she stumbled upon Blue Lapis Light performing “Devotion” during a night walk on Town Lake. She was so moved that she immediately started taking classes at the BLL studio, determined to one day soar through the sky. She loved dance throughout her childhood but it was that summer when her full time studies in ballet, modern and aerial silks and aerial harness began. Over the years she has performed in many showcases and professionally for Rapt aerial dance company. She also performs for several modern dance choreographers and artists in various collaborations in Austin. Angela continues to train in silks and dance. She loves to perform in unconventional settings. She is thrilled to perform for the first time with Blue Lapis Light! 
Light and love,

Your aerial community at Blue Lapis Light
