Vertical dance company, Aeriosa, returns to the theatrical stage for the first-time in seven years with its newest full-evening work, Second Nature.

On stage at the Scotiabank Dance Centre in Vancouver, Second Nature features six dancers using a variety of technical rigging, to suspend in free-floating formations or ascend and descend throughout the piece. Embodying the versatile attributes of bamboo, the dancers in Second Nature become a metaphor for human adaptability and journey in life.

Vancouver Presents went inside the rehearsal studio for a sneak peek and interview with Aeriosa founder, and the choreographer of Second Nature, Julia Taffe.

Second Nature plays the Scotiabank Dance Centre (677 Davie St, Vancouver) on May 24-26. Tickets are available online from Tickets Tonight or visit aeriosa.com for more information.
