An Asheville Aerial Arts Production
Presented at Asheville Community Theatre

January 16-18, 2015
Friday at 7:30 pm; Saturday at 2:30 pm & 7:30 pm; Sunday at 2:30 pm

Emotion and beauty are just two reasons you can’t miss UP, an Asheville Aerial Arts production. Combining theater, acrobatics, dance and aerial arts, UP is a full spectrum of the local troupe’s artistic and athletic talent. “UP will feature Acrobalance, German Wheel, Spanish Web, Trapeze, Silks, Sling, Lyra, Double Trapeze, Stilt Walking and more,” said Christine Aiken, Asheville Aerial Arts’ Artistic Director. “This show is an uplifting journey for the entire family, and is a great way to witness our troupe’s grace and athleticism up close!”
 
Asheville Aerial Arts (12)UP will take audiences on a journey through one man’s life and the adventures he experiences along the way. We see Carl as a young boy, growing up with his sweetheart Ellie. They celebrate their marriage in a doubles trapeze piece that is sure to thrill you with impressive skills and tenderness between Ellie and Carl. Ellie’s loss of life is honored through a moving lyra performance, sure to bring tears to your eyes. The show moves on to introduce a new apparatus, the aerial window, as well as a mirror sling, demonstrating the troupe’s creativity. Along the way, Carl introduces audiences to a giant bird, and a child (aerials performed by a mere 5 year old) he meets along the way. The finale features graceful yet strong artists, swinging through the air on silks, while executing stunning aerial acrobatics.

Directed by Angie Flynn-McIver and starring Michael MacCauley

March 11-22, 2015
Wednesdays – Saturdays at 7:30 pm; Sundays at 2:30 pm

In 18th century Vienna, music is the currency of power. And Court Composer Antonio Salieri is the toast of the town. That is, until a young prodigy by the name of Mozart comes on the scene. Reeling from the realization of his own mediocrity in the face of true genius, Salieri swears vengeance on the God that gifted Mozart’s breathtaking talent. Swells of music and madness stir through the Tony Award-winning drama that raises the question: how far would you go to secure your legacy? Starring Michael MacCauley and Directed by Angie Flynn McIver. Immerse yourself in 18th century Vienna in this Co-Production of Amadeus presented by NC Stage and Asheville Community Theatre.
