Uh, haven’t I seen a lot of this before? Brenda Angiel Aerial Dance Company returns to ADF

Hazard warnings:

Too-loud sound; strobe lighting; way-much theatrical smoke; boredom.

I know, the boredom is really unexpected.

If you’ve seen Brenda Angiel Aerial Dance Company at the American Dance Festival in previous years, you may find Air Condition a bit of a warmed-over hash. If not, know that this is not aerial dance at its most glorious. Check the videos on the company site before shelling out for a ticket. Read my review, published 6/6/2013 on http://www.cvnc.org.

  1. I could not agree with you more. When we left last night our conversation included things like:
    – Haven’t wee seen some of this before?
    – Way too much strobe, tiring to the eyes and hard to see the dancers,
    – I loved the tango duo and trio but when they did almost the same thing with the three couples I thought that they had a 45 minute piece and needed to stretch it to 60 minutes.

    Kate, thanks for giving the names of the music.
