About the Event

Elemental Arts presents: Wildflowers
In collaboration with Selah Dance Collective
A story told through Aerial, Circus, and Dance
How do art & movement help us to heal?
Seen through the lens of aerial, circus, and dance arts.
Join our artists as they navigate our bodies’ natural survival responses; fight, flight, freeze and fawn.
In the summertime, we dance through lush fields. But in the dry fall heat, a wildfire engulfs the vibrant landscape, leaving behind scorched earth in its’ wake. In the harsh grip of winter, we roam through the fields of withering wildflowers, each flower representing our bodies’ natural responses to this communal trauma.
But why do these emotions seem so negative? Have they come as guides to teach us something about ourselves?
Can we find physically based techniques to embrace our emotions, & blossom into spring? Will these new guides help us find new growth?
*Special Guest Announcement!*
Prequel by Circus with Purpose and renown aerial theater pioneers, Paper Doll Militia. The debut of their new work “Homeostasis”
An aerial sculpture & performance piece fusing the visual design of Shibari with contemporary aerial arts. The apparatus is a large-scale visual interpretation of the human nervous system, constructed entirely with rope. This tree-like apparatus becomes an elaborate structure for 2 aerial performers exploring dysregulation and resilience on personal and societal levels.
