Dissecting Aerial 2022

Sat 15 + Sun 16 January 2022

Dissecting Aerial is back for 2022! This time, the 2-day aerial dance symposium promoting healthy practice ,will be both live at Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts in Brighton AND live-streamed internationally online.

The event will showcase practice, pedagogical and personal approaches to healthy and sustainable practice from aerial artists, researchers, body workers, medical and sports science practitioners from across the globe. We’re able to bring you world renowned practitioners and speakers, wherever you are, whether you’re joining us solo at home, with your community in your local studio, or with us at ACCA..

We recognise the difficulties and disparities of international travel right now, whilst also acknowledging the necessity to return to practice, rebuild and nurture our aerial communities and networks. If there’s one positive that has come out of all of this, it has been in maintaining connections (albeit virtually) and recognising the relative ease with which we can come together across time zones. 

We’ll be partnering with aerial organisations and training centres world-wide to create global watching and participation hubs, where your team / local community can safely gather, connect to us virtually in the UK and participate live in-person in your local area. This way we can celebrate what unites us: our mutual passions for aerial practice and to revel in the diversity of those.

The line-up of workshops and topics will include:
  • Technique/injury prevention
  • Business & personal survival strategies 
  • Flexing your creative muscle 
  • Applied anatomy for aerial & life
  • Psychology for artist self-care
  • Longevity in the aerial arts 
  • Accessibility in aerial workshop design & delivery
  • Techniques for out of studio practice.

Ticket sales open late November.
