The canopy walkway is suspended 20m above the forest floor between 100-year old Douglas, red cedar and grand firs. With special rigging set up in the trees, the dancers will be performing a combination of vertical dance, rock climbing and storytelling to “negotiate movement in a duet with another species”.
The Aeriosa dancers have performed in many locations within Canada as well as internationally, and they are known for their sense of surprise and awe-inspiring moments throughout their shows. Check out their YouTube channel to view previous performances, or watch the playlist below to get a sense of what their events are usually like.
Experience an entirely unique show in the high viewing platforms with the family, or take in the adults-only show with an accompaniment of wine and cheese.
