About Within and Without
Using dance trapeze, hammock, trapeze ladder, and aerial fabrics, eight aerialists consider the borders and boundaries in and around themselves, exploring relationships in and among minds, bodies, and body parts. They consider topics from the behavior of cancer cells to the breakdown of a friendship to the relationships we have with our own minds.
