This project was extremely exciting to design for. Working for Aerial dance really forced me to think in different coordinates than I would for traditional dance. Considering the height and how to make those dynamic shifts were in a vertical plane helped to give me a shift in perspective when lighting space and the performer in the space. There were three different companies that interacted with each with numerous acts that needed individual attention to achieve the aesthetic vision of the various choreographers.
