Cycropia Aerial Dance proudly brings its magical blend of dance and circus arts to the 2019 Orton Park Festival in a performance of spectacular works. Audiences will have two chances to see this FREE show, on Thursday, August 22nd, at 7:30 pm, and Friday, August 23rd, at 8:30 pm.
Using trapezes, ladders, hoops, straps, stilts, and other custom-designed aerial apparatus (including the debut of a brand new aerial lotus!), dancers will play with gravity and verticality as they perform below and within the canopy of one of Orton Park’s majestic oak trees.
Cycropia has been performing at the Orton Park Festival for over 20 years, creating a Madison community dance tradition. The show is appropriate for all ages, and Thursday’s performance during “family night” at the Orton Park Festival will feature pizza, ice cream, and activities for kids prior to the performance.
This performance is a great way to cap off your summer!
