Any show billed as a “fluid journey of the soul” has a lot to live up to. Unfortunately, this melting pot of dance, aerials, clown and theatre doesn’t deliver, winding up as flaccid as its hanging (albeit still glorious) purple silks.

San Francisco’s Azana Pilar and Jason Morneau loosely explore gender roles, relationships, and the games people play. Monologues — intended to share deep philosophical musings about life and love — are riddled with ponderous clichés. As the two come together, Morneau’s “beating” Pilar seems to suggest this is all just part of a healthy normal relationship. Their clowning is marginally more effective. However, the powerfully strong Pilar’s gravity-defying twists and drops on the silks still impress – and would easily have been enough.

— Holly Harris

 

From the Fringe program:

Aerial Allusions is the fusion of multiple performance styles - dance, aerials, clown and theatre - to portray human emotions. It depicts the struggle of gender roles. It addresses insecurities and confusion, the ways we relate to each other and ourselves. It expresses feminine and masculine perspectives. There is philosophy, humor, chaos and control. Monologues and dance solos share inner reflection, dance duos express the connections between people. Music ties it all together into a dynamic and fluid journey of the soul.
