Last week Aeriosa dancers and crew returned to rehearsals in the theatre doing double duty developing new aerial dance skills while cautiously implementing Covid-19 safe workplace protocols and getting back into (new) harnesses after an extremely long break.
We spent four soul-affirming days at the Scotiabank Dance Centre in Vancouver practicing with a finely tuned rigging system that was new to most of the company. The dancers were rightfully jazzed to be flying high and working hard. We began creating material for 'Dance Me to the End of Love: The Leonard Cohen Project', a live stage show featuring a stellar roster of BC musical talent that we hope to premiere on stage at the Vancouver Playhouse in April 2022.
Of course, everything is subject to change these days depending on safety, so lets keep our fingers crossed that we can gain herd immunity and find ourselves shoulder to shoulder with kindred crowds in the theatre sooner than later!
