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.
This fall, before I launched Aerial Journal, I returned to Susan Murphy's Marsh Studio for my second aerial retreat. Susan and her husband, Don Carson, founded my home studio, Canopy, in Athens, Georgia.
Yup, sometimes you just don’t like the music you’ve been asked to perform to. And sometimes artists make peculiar, I mean, interesting, choices as to what will fit an event.
So, what to do?
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.
We now have a Google Map of aerial and circus studios across America!
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!
