Dance performance blends yoga, acrobatics
Do you want to watch the dance?
"The pièce de résistance, however, and I doubt anyone in the
almost-at-capacity audience would disagree, was the acroyoga performed
by dancer and choreographer Silvita Diaz Brown and Christopher Knowlton.
I have never seen acroyoga before, had never even heard the term before
attending Braiding Rivers, but after seeing Diaz Brown and Knowlton
perform it, I implore you: go see some acroyoga! A chorus of four women
dressed in white performed movements in the back right corner of the
stage with Knowlton as Diaz Brown performed the beginning of the story,
which was enthralling, but once the pair got rolling, I dont think a
fire alarm would have caused the audience to move from their seats
unless flames were licking at our feet. Knowlton was tossing Diaz Brown
in the air with his feet at times, but he made it look so effortless
that it wasnt until after the show that we saw most of his
kabuki-looking stage makeup had melted into droplets on his face."
