They fly! They twirl! They dance! Our friends at Dark Sky Aerial are taking to the sky, silks, lyra, pole and more to raise money for the Flagstaff Family Food Center. Starting April 13th and going April 21st, they will be releasing one scene per day from their 2018 performance of TILT: Truth is a Vantage Point.

Tune into the Dark Sky YouTube channel to watch a new scene each day, and contribute to the GoFundMe campaign if you have the means. We’re all in this together, and the Foundry is proud to promote this amazing show to raise money for such an important cause.

Dark Sky Aerial strives to reach the heart of our humanity by exploring our shared experiences. Our mission drives us to awaken our sense of connection, through various forms of performance art. Although we are not in a position to create live works due to COVID-19, our mission still stands firm. We feel a deep love for our community here in Flagstaff and for our worldwide community, which we are all a part of. We recognize that we all are going through a challenging time together in our own unique ways. We will get through this together. Even though we are physically distancing, connection and communication can and will continue to thrive with a new sense of appreciation. We may not be in control of a virus and many other obstacles, but we are in control of who we want to be and how we want to dance to this. This is the power we all possess.

We would like to remind everyone that, while we cannot be physically close, be sure to smile and make eye contact with one another. We feel it is important to recognize even the little ways we can be helpful and have compassion for those suffering the most. Dark Sky Aerial has been exploring creative ways to help the community using the resources we have. The virtual release of TILT is our humble effort to create a platform for our audience to give back to the community – if inspired or able to do so.

We appreciate each and every one of you for making our community so remarkable.
