HIGH-FLYING ACROBATS AT USU FOR ARTS WEEK
LOGAN — Event organizers promise that the Aerial Angels will amaze with its performance as part of Arts Week at Utah State University. The aerial, acrobatic group performs Wednesday, Jan. 23, 7:30 p.m., in the Kent Concert Hall of the Chase Fine Arts Center.
“This event is geared toward both students and community members to involve them in the arts,” said Meg Campbell, arts senator representing the college in ASUSU. “This show will be entertaining to everyone who comes.”
The Aerial Angels are a circus arts and aerial theater company based in Michigan. The mostly-female group specializes in aerial silk, trapeze, fire-eating, contortion, comedy and partner acrobatics. The company performs throughout the United States and different countries, including Italy, United Arab Emirates, Singapore and England.
The group performs with the assistance of a 24-foot free-standing hot pink aerial rig that holds the aerial silk, trapeze and hoop. The performers travel in a 1998 Toyota Camry, fitting the aerial rig, three or four performers, their gear and costumes in and on top of the car.
“I always thought acrobatics were amazing and of all the Arts Week activities going on, that is the one I definitely want to go to,” said Carly Ballard, a sophomore majoring in music therapy.
Tickets for Aerial Angels are $10 adults, $8 seniors and youth, free for USU students with ID. For information and tickets visit the CCA Box Office located in room 139-B in the Chase Fine Arts Center, call 435-797-8022 or online (visit arts.usu.edu).
