Aerial Aura, Oct. 21, 2-3 p.m., Garden of the Gods Visitor & Nature Center, 1805 N. 30th St., free, pikespeakartscouncil.org.
erial arts consistently break the bounds of the stage, with performers climbing and whirling to new heights with their art through circus and cabaret. But a group of local aerialists plan to do away with the stage altogether at a special Arts Month performance in Garden of the Gods this weekend. Held outdoors with Pikes Peak as a backdrop, Aerial Aura will feature at least four performing artists, including Emily and Chris Wegert, Julia Angevine and Mallory Pedersen, performing a mix of trapeze, silks and hoop. The Wegerts, proud newlyweds, plan to perform a duo trapeze act. Other acts and apparatuses are dependent on the weather, but no matter what performance you see you’ll have a chance to experience a new kind of movement art, and ask the performers questions between their shows.
