Friday July 7 & Sunday July 9

Duo Lyra
Friday July 7, 6:30 – 8:00 pm, $50

  For those of us who don’t fold up like a pretzel, double lyra is a seldom tapped goldmine of stunning poses, innovative basing, and graceful transitions. It’s a fantastic vessel for creating exciting new work with ample opportunity for heavy character work. Learn to base, learn to fly, and learn all of the in-between.

Prerequisites: Ability to invert and sit up on lyra without assistance

Duo Trapeze – Basing and Flying
Friday July 7, 8:00 – 9:30 pm, $50

  Doubles trapeze can seem quite intimidating to the novice eye, but many combinations can be achieved by people who have barely touched a trapeze. In this workshop, learn the safety and fundamentals of basing and flying while discovering body awareness in the air. Begin to feel comfortable trusting others with your weight and gain confidence in your strength and overall ability. For more advanced students, learn to embrace the joys of twisting and learn how to safely complete release tricks. Discover how fluid a routine can be as transitions turn into drops and the base becomes the flyer. Warning: first timers tend to leave these workshops feeling empowered and completely enamored with doubles trapeze. No partner required.

Requirements: Ability to invert on either static trap, silks, lyra or rope.

Silks – Creative Climbs and Twists
Sunday July 9, 2:00-3:30 pm, $50

  Take your fabric work to the next level with new ways to ascend and wrap. Discover just how many options there are to get high as you delve into unexplored aerial territory, twisting and contorting in awe-inspiring, but secretly simple, ways. Find new paths into and out of old tricks and create new ones in the process.

Prerequisite: Ability to invert from a climb, foot locks.

  Caitlyn Larsson is a jack of all trades, and attempting to become master of a few. She received a BFA in theatre and education from New York University and after a brief stint as a professional tour director (If you look out the right side of the bus, you’ll see the Statue of Liberty), she discovered and fell in love with circus. After sprinting off to England for some whirlwind training at Circomedia in flying trapeze, aerial arts and acrobatics, Caitlyn became a roving circus vagrant, traveling the globe performing and teaching. She spent 2 years in San Juan, Puerto Rico, employed as the new rig manager for Trapeze School New York, crafting shows for Bahia Urbana in Old San Juan, helping with the inaugural International Circus Festival in PR, and plotting ways to bring Clowns Without Borders to the island. She took some time to galavant around Fiji and New Zealand, attempting to surf and teaching workshops to locals. There was a stint in San Francisco, meeting colorful West Oakland locals, and the direction of a full length circus show in Dallas before fleeing the country for some rest, relaxation and more workshops and performance in SE Asia and Australia. Currently she can be found in Melbourne, studying exercise science by day and singing in her one woman circus comedy show at night.
