Our Story

Dark Sky Aerial  is a cutting-edge, aerial dance company creating unforgettable works of kinesthetic theatre  and performance art  based in Flagstaff, Arizona and Mill Valley, California.

In creating aerial theatre to explore the human experience, Dark Sky Aerial seeks to inspire our audiences to dream bigger.

Dark Sky Aerial is a company of  aerialists, dancers, acrobats, actors, and artists working together to create heart-stirring works of aerial theatre. We specialize in constructing interactive worlds which invite the audience to experience a story.

Our productions showcase theatre to be experienced, not seen. Dark Sky Aerial is dedicated to creating thought-provoking repertory work, connecting the audience to their humanity. Dark Sky Aerial is a dream realized by five women: Abby Chan, Carrie Gaydos, Elisa Venezia, Isabelle Dove-Robinson and Joan Garcia.
