New-Orleans-LAmotionSt. Louis, MO
ST. Louis Aerial Collective
https://stlaerial.org/class-offerings/series-classes/
Research and Destroy (silks/rope)
6 hours @ $200.00
This workshop is for aerialists who want to broaden their boundaries and identify habits, assumptions and expectations in their artistic practice. We will work towards creating a coherent, thinking body by building awareness using techniques and skills collected through research and experience. We will integrate transitions and “tricks” into sequences.
Prerequisites: be able to invert in air repeatedly and understand a hip key and s-wrap. 4 classes, 1.5 hours each. Not eligible for member discount.

The Unconventional Side of Lyra
6 hours @ $200.00
This workshop is for students who want to explore classic hoop vocabulary by way of contemporary thought. We will explore points of static and rolling contact and examine weight shifts that can help us find unexpected places of balance and release. You’ll gain movement awareness that supports intuition, technique, and your development as mover and creator.
Prerequisites: a solid understanding of the basics, and able to invert & mount hoop without assistance. 4 classes, 1.5 hours each. No member discount

Performing in Denver Tuesday August 7th at Invisible City

Lisa_InvisibleCity_Flyer02Some Animals Are Easily Startled
Where: Invisible City (1545 Julian St, Denver, CO 80204)
Time: 7:30pm doors at 7pm
https://www.facebook.com/events/510014166085251/
Rainbow Militia and Invisible City are thrilled to host Lisa Natoli for a performance of her new show “Some Animals are Easily Startled,” a staged reading of a solo involving other people. An artist talk back will follow the performance.

This evening questions what is it to make and view work in the current social climate, with all the baggage we carry. Lisa’s work is subtle with a raw sense of humor and a volatile sense of being.

Lisa is returning to Denver after spending over a year in Minneapolis where she was head aerial instructor at ExperTease Fitness and performed with Black Hearts Burlesque and Elektra Cute Presents and at The Minnsky Theater. She will be retuning to MSP in October to present a collaborative rope piece with Elizabeth Munn at The Minneapolis Burlesque Festival. Lisa worked with Spiegelworld and Steven Hoggett at St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn (2017), Drumming: A Group Hallucination at House of Yes (2017) and has been presenting solo and ensemble work in NYC for over 10 years and is a regular performer in the NYC cabaret scene making appearances at the Slipper Room, Galapagos Art Space, Coney Island USA, House of Yes, and Dixon Place.
Suggested Donation of $20 at the door, no one turned away.
(Cash, Venmo, or Credit Card)
