A-WOL Dance Collective : Aerial without Limits, is excited to announce their signature annual performance, ART in the DARK, ‘Drop of a Hat,’ showcasing local aerial artists under the stars, suspended from old growth trees featuring a musical score and live performances by Anthony Meade.
Drop of a Hat is a story of an unqualified group of 9-to-5ers turned circus troupe by happenstance, revealing a production of dreams mixed with drama that comes about in any large group of humans.
A lion that refuses to be tamed, an aerialist confused about love, a magician whose tricks fall flat, a poodle quite good on a cyr wheel and some sneaky stagehands who secretly set out to steal the show are just a few of the shenanigans that you’ll witness in the magical setting of the Mary S. Young Park.
Come experience all the traditional circus fun combined with the inventive spirit and impressive feats A-WOL is known for.
ART in the DARK annual performance is an interactive, family-friendly, illuminated production with intimate, in-the-round theater-style seating. A transformation of a forested dirt park plot into a performance venue represents the relationship between art and nature best witnessed in the Pacific Northwest. Come see why A-WOL has grabbed the attention of thousands of performance art enthusiasts!
*no real animals or fur is used in this production
