Thank you for attending Pendulum's production of Frida! We look forward to seeing you again soon.


For two nights only, see three amazing performers who have inspired each other and countless others, take the stage in three solo performances. The evening will also feature performances by the next generation of aerial and ground-based contemporary acts, members of the Pendulum company and students from Pendulum's Professional Training Program.

Fred Deb', an internationally acclaimed silks artist who heads her own performing company in France, Drapés Aériens, will be performing her show Frida, which deals with life, from birth to death; learning to walk, maturing and aging.

Suzanne Kenney, founder and Artistic Director of Pendulum Aerial Arts and an innovator in both aerial performance and education in the United States, will perform a new work developed in collaboration with Fred during her visit. Laura Stokes, former PAA company member and co-founder of Ricochet, a contemporary circus duo whose intimate theatrical circus shows have toured to sold out audiences across the country will also appear. Laura will perform a new work related to the season's themes of growth and transformation.

In 2004, PAA Artistic Director and founder Suzanne Kenney brought French aerial pioneer, Fred Deb', to Pendulum for a month-long residency. The artist had a profound impact on the artistic direction of Pendulum, and on Suzanne's own performances. The women worked side-by-side, learning from each other as they taught. Among their students was an aspiring young performer, Laura Stokes. Inspired by the work of Suzanne and Fred, along with their performance partners, Laura went on to become an innovative and respected performer of contemporary circus arts. Now, a decade later, the three women will share the stage, exploring the cycles of life and coming full circle.
