VICTORIA, B.C. – Electra Pole Art Productions, Vancouver Island’s only professional pole and aerial dance production company, presents PoleCraft: Aerial Artistry & Other Spells (“PoleCraft”) merging acrobatic pole skills, classical dance and theatrical staging by award-winning artists on September 27 and 28, 2019 at Metro Studio Theatre.
Featuring performers from Cirque de Soleil and iconic pole dance studios, PoleCraft is a celebration of aerial artists who defy gravity, leaving audiences captivated, curious and spellbound. Using hanging equipment like hoop (“lyra”) and silks (“tissu”) alongside stationary poles, PoleCraft incorporates high-energy acrobatics with complex choreography which unfolds in an abstract narrative of female power, otherworldliness, sorcery, illusion and transformation. As a rallying cry for change, PoleCraft embodies, literally and metaphorically, living outside of conventional boundaries. This production includes contemporary pole, theatrical pole, exotic pole and aerial art. The aerial art acts include double-bar trapeze, hoop, silks, and an aerial moon.
