Today's image is titled Cycropia and was photographed by Dave Esmond.
This photo shows the shadows of two performers in "Alloy," the new show by Cycropia Aerial Dance that was performed on Sunday, April 6 at the Boys and Girls Club of Madison. As described by the dance troupe:
Alloy features fifteen Aerial Artists with nine compositions on a variety of steel-based apparatus. The show springs from a winter Aerial Steel workshop sponsored by Cycropia Aerial Dance.
Jenn White, who has facilitated this project, has invited kids from the community to share the stage and perform their original works.
Quite a bit of work went into setting up the show, which was described by Cycropia member Nataraj Hauser, who shot dozens of photos of the rigging and the performers over the weekend. Esmond also shot more photos of the performance, while a gallery of close-up, mid-air pics of the dancers in action were taken by Michael McKiernan for Cycropia.
