Madamn Burnz: on eating fire, finding aerial, and continuing after a spinal injury

Madamn Burnz performs with fire

My human body was given life nearly 30 years ago, bearing the blessing and curse of an unidentifiable medical condition. My bones did not support a dense maturation process, though did extend in length; this condition produced an oddly flexible skeletal frame, and a thick muscle build, especially given my fortunate diet.

Aerial Journal Student Spotlight: Keyvious Avery

Keyvious Avery performs on fabric at D'AIR in Atlanta

Fifteen-year-old Keyvious Avery began taking aerial classes at age 9, not long after the D'AIR Project opened in Atlanta. He's performed on the static trapeze and the spanish web, but his favorite apparatus by far is the fabrics, or silks... 

Keyvious performed his most recent fabrics piece for us, which we documented in a photo essay.

Bettina finds a place to Chalice on the dance trapeze

Bettina takes advantage of a place for a Chalice in-between poses

This was an "in between" pose, I had done a V-up from a Surrender and was going into some fun twisty stuff, but I love a good Chalice position so I figured I'd take advantage of where I was to do one. I love it because it looks like I'm just sitting in there, hands and legs free to do whatever they want!
