Astraeus Vignettes En L'Air

MYTHOS: Opening Pandora's Box​ is an aerial dance adventure that weaves together an eclectic blend of mythological stories. MYTHOS begins with opening Pandora’s Box, releasing the powerful forces hidden within. The drama of the characters plays out against a backdrop of Chaos unchained, leading them to embrace Hope and Transcendence to overcome the evils of humanity. 

Save My Soul  is an aerial dance extravaganza that captures the festive culture of New Orleans as well as its dark mysterious side. The adventure follows Armand, a poor man from the Bayou searching for love and excitement, who finds it with the help of dark voodoo magic. But what worth is his heart's desire if it costs him his soul?

Vignettes En L'Air  is a dazzling display of the range of Astraeus Aerial Dance Theatre. It features a collection of excerpts from Save My Soul, as well as Mythos: Opening Pandora's box, in addition to original short works choreographed and performed by the various members of Astraeus.
