BELLE -A performance of air, is the working title for a work in development that explores the nature and physics of aerial objects from a choreographic and immersive perspective.
Belle is funded by CNZ
A second development of the work occurred in June 2019.
Performance of air will become a multimedia immersive style performance event that utilises and harnesses the skills of aerial specialists in collaboration with dance artists. New and existing aerial apparatus will be explored with the notion of sustainment of physicality over a period of time. Live music, light and AV will feature strongly in the production design for the work.
The audience will witness aerial choreography from an immersive, atmospheric and social perspective.
