When: Sat., Aug. 10, 8 p.m. 2013
Bad puns aside, climbing up a suspended piece of silk and then doing a series of flips, splits, and twirls, while somehow maintaining a state of grace, is high up there on a list of humanity’s great achievements. This Saturday, enjoy the spectacle of silk-dancing, as well as bungee and trapeze, in an evening devoted to aerial dance at UpSwing Aerial Dance Company (2525 Eighth St., Berkeley). All benefits from the program benefit the dance company, so you can rest easy knowing that even if you can’t dangle from a piece of red silk suspended only by your big toe, you’re at least contributing to someone else being able to do so.
