pics from last night…

Oh goodness! We had such fun performing at AerLift. What a super night! If you missed it, you missed Jill’s awesome performance of her new rope piece. But don’t be sad! You can see it this weekend at the Velocity party. It’s the grand opening of their new space. Go, support Velocity, have fun, and get totally creeped out. Watching the audience watch this piece is almost as much fun as watching Jill perform it…


busy, busy, busy!

Okay! Here’s a bunch of things we’re doing… I keep saying how we’re making summer plans, so here is a little bit to get you started:

Local Appearances:
-Sunday March 21, 7:30 PM at Hale’s Palladium, Elizabeth will be performing her trap solo from no.1 as part of the the Moisture Festival.

-Wednesday, March 24, 7:30 PM at Hale’s Palladium, Jill and Elizabeth will both be performing solos at AerLift, a benefit show for Camino Seguro. Camino Seguro is an organization that helps kids and families who live off the garbage dump in Guatemala City, Mexico. You can get tix (if it’s not sold out yet) from the Moisture Festival website (linked above).

-Saturday, April 3, 6-9pm at Grey Gallery on Cap Hill, Bridget and Elizabeth will both be performing at a fundraiser for our sister company, Manifold Motion. Come on out and support our amazing, talented friends!

-Fri-Sun, Apr. 30-May 2 at the Exhibition Hall at Seattle Center, Elizabeth will be unveiling a new solo on a new sculptural apparatus in Roger Benington’s Cabaret de Curiosities at the Seattle Erotic Art Festival. Frankly, the show is going to be off the hook. So get your advanced tickets right effing now.

And then… we go on the road a bit!

Sat & Sun, May 15 & 16, we are in NYC! Jill and Elizabeth have been invited to perform their duo, “deamons no.1” as part of the 2010 Aerial Dance Fest. Performances are at 8:30pm at the JCC in Manhattan; Goldman-Sonnenfeldt Family Auditorium.

Fri-Sun, May 28-30, we return from New York just in time to turn around and head to fantastic Ashland, Oregon! All kidding aside, we are honored to be hosted by Dancing People Company for a weekend of workshops and performances. We’ll be teaching aerial rep and partnering workshops and doing 2 performances of no.1. Ticket info coming soon– looks as though the website is down for the moment…

Sat & Sun, July 3 & 4, Elizabeth will be performing “Studio:Morning” in the Big Range Dance Festival in Austin. Perfromances will happen at the Salvage Vanguard Theatre, please check the festival schedule for showtimes.

There are more things cooking, including a trip to Olympia in June, but details have yet to be finalized. We’ll let you know as things happen. Thanks for all the love and support! Let us know what’s happening in your worlds…


in which our heroines are super optimistic while juggling other projects; trying to be computer savvy

Hi good people!

First off, I have to just acknowledge that we have been a little out of sorts this past week because of the death of our friend and volunteer, John Moore. He was an extremely kind and generous man. He was smart and talented and laughed a lot. We loved him personally and professionally. We will miss you very much, John.

On a happier note, ticktock is moving into the summer with a bunch of prospects and a slew of festival applications in hand. You might have spied Jill recently performing solo at the Brotherhood in Olympia. We will be returning to Oly at the end of May, performing no.1 — probably at the Royal but we are also exploring the idea of performing the show in an open air venue there… I don’t want to say too much but we will keep you posted. It’s so exciting! In July, I (hey, it’s Elizabeth!) will be taking my solo to Austin to perform in the Big Range Dance Festival. I am super psyched about that because I am from Austin, and haven’t performed there in over 10 years now. I can’t wait to see what old friends and collaborators have to say about my new work. I am eager to hear their feedback– they have a unique perspective of me as an artist. They knew me “when”.

I just spent about a dozen hours cutting video of no.1 into a ten minute trailer. I will definitely post a link…as soon as I figure out how to get the darn thing off of Bruce’s computer and in the correct format and online. Groan. It is hard work, ya’ll! I did it for support material for a bunch of applications– some things in the PNW, some not. I will post updates here on what pans out. Keep your fingers crossed for us!

As for now, Jill and I have a bunch of shows with our other project, the Aerialistas, coming up in the Moisture Festival. We opened at ACT Theatre this weekend, and will move on to Hales Palladium and Open Space on Vashon Island. You can see the full schedule of all my performances at lizaroseaerial.com. I will be performing my trap solo from no.1 twice at Hales, and Jill and Bridget will be making appearances at Aerlift on Mar. 24th, performing new ticktock works in progress. Jill might do her freaky avant Train Sounds rope solo– not to be missed!

In the meantime, we are in the studio working a lot on our hand-to-hand and acro skills. I don’t know why, but that just seems to be where our interests lie these days. Ideas are percolating for the next show, and it is going to be weird. Very, very weird. We can’t wait.

Leave us a comment if you’re reading this. We’d like to hear from you!
