SWAY POLES

APRIL 29 - MAY 1

 

This ASC curated performance is made possible by the generous support of Jemison Investment Company.

 

 

Celebrate spring at the ASC with the return of a FREE family community event, Cirque Alys 2, featuring Australia’s Sway Poles! » Sway Poles is a Melbourne-based arts company whose work fuses theatre, dance and circus at an elevated medium. Artists sway from 16-foot-tall poles creating a largescale visual art installation. » Originally based on the image of a field of wheat swaying in the breeze, the poles extreme strength and flexibility allow the performers to bow to impossible angles, swaying back and forth in a hypnotizing dance. » With a world-renowned repertoire that celebrates a wide variety of themes and stories, the company has achieved near-cult status in almost every continent across the globe. » Don’t miss this opportunity to see Australia’s Sway Poles perform “Swoon” during their ASC residency.
