Aerial Workshops & Performance

Join former DU colleagues Thérèse Keegan and Lizard Walker (New Altitude) for an evening of aerial dance theater. “Lines Interrupted” is a 2017 performance collaboration from this family and creative team that uses humor, beauty, and insight to explore the balance of stability and growth.  Trapeze, aerial fabric, and invented apparatus set the stage for the world of mystery and potential that this elevated dance form inhabits!
