Emotion and beauty are just two reasons you can't miss this show. Combing theater, dance and aerial arts, this show is more than a showcase of this local troupe's talent. UP will take audiences on a journey through one man's life and the adventures he experiences along the way. We see Carl, played by Asheville Community Theater's Scott Cameron, 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 demonstrating the troupe's creativity. Along the way, Carl introduces audiences to a giant bird, played by a stilt walker, and a child (aerials performed by a mere 4 year old) he meets along the way. The silks ensemble finale will feature several artists swinging through the air, while executing stunning aerials. This show has something for everyone Acrobalance, German Wheel, Spanish Web, Trapeze, Silks, Sling, Lyra, Double Trapeze, Stilt Walking and more. If you caught these amazing artists at the halftime show of the Southeastern Basketball Conference championship games at the U.S. Cellular Center on March 10th and want more, or if missed that show, here is your chance to witness their grace and athleticism close up.
