In this innovative and collaborative video project, Zaccho Dance Theatre brings together 16 international aerial artists to tell a collective narrative during this time of uncertainty and social chaos. Taking place on mountain tops, old forts, bridges, and in gardens, this work reveals an intimate perspective of the world we are navigating.

The final video will premiere online for free on December 19, 2020, at sfaerialartsfest.org.

Special online Q&A panels featuring the aerial artists will be hosted December 19th & 20th on Facebook.

** For the video, Audio Description provided by Gravity Access Services for visually impaired audience members. Q&A Panels will include closed captioning.
