Solstice! Winter Aerial Dance and Music celebration
UpSwing Aerial Dance Company announces its celebratory Winter Solstice event “Solstice!” Performance is held on December 21, 2017 at 7 PM at Studio 12 in Berkeley CA. Tickets may be purchased in advance at www.upswingaerialdance.org or at the door. Join UpSwing Aerial Dance Company this holiday season as we celebrate our 7th anniversary and welcome the return of the sun and the birth of a New Year.
“Solstice!” is an East Bay favorite holiday alternative since 2005. Produced every other year, this is the 7th production. “Solstice!” celebrates the longest night of the year with music and dance by some of the Bay Area’s finest performers.
This year enter into a winter’s night, complete with dancing stars, a moon goddess and snowbirds. Experience the tour de force music of Mark Vickness’ intricate, layered guitars and David Worm’s soaring, blues-inflected vocals (Glass House), Amar Singh Khalsa’s magical flute, Sahib Amar Kaur Khalsa’s deeply moving viola and Dan Cantrell’s virtuosic abilities on the accordion and musical saw.
Aerialists performing in this show are UpSwing Company members Jennifer Alvarado, Kirstin Brown, Helen Fitanides, Alissa Kaplan Soto, Helium Valentine and the Teens Who Fly.
