AIR HEART with MARA NEIMANIS

Air Hart

Air Heart

From April 23-25 at 8pm, aerialist and TSKW artist-in-residence Mara Neimanis presents Air Heart, a sixty minute solo aerial performance about the life, mystery and final flight of Amelia Earhart. Visually remarkable, the performance takes place on a 12 foot tall spinning metal plane sculpture. It’s theater like you’ve never seen before presented by The Studios of Key West.
Air Heart provides a touching glimpse into the life and personality of the pioneering aviatrix. Written and performed by Mara Neimanis, it’s a daring and original theatrical experiment that takes on the myth, dream, and actualization of flight and feminism.
Broadwayworld.com says of Neimanis, “Her physical performance appears effortless, and her movements between earth and sky are smoothly controlled and beautifully executed … a delightful departure from traditional fourth-wall theatre.”Mara Neimanis is the founder and principal performer of In-Flight Theater in Baltimore. Her work comprises original solo and ensemble aerial plays as well as on-site installation/performances in collaboration with sculptor Tim Scofield and director Bryce Butler. Mara creates theatre in the air using invented aerial apparatus that include static and suspended steel sculptures.
Air Heart illustrates the athletic female body in partnership with the plane sculpture as a forum to share the events, courage, conflicts, and pioneering accomplishments of Earhart as a woman, aviator and feminist icon.
Drawing on traditions of Mask Performance, Clown, and Commedia dell’Arte, Neimanis’ work integrates circus arts with physical acting to create stories, text, and characters which explore the rich interplay of imagination between air and ground. Neimanis is interested in using acting and aerialism in nontraditional ways in order to cross personal boundaries and limitations.
Air Heart is sponsored by Gallery on Greene.
Air Heart is suitable for family audiences. Tickets art $30/$25 mbrs and are available at tskw.org. TSKW members may purchase $25 advance tickets by calling 305-296-0458 or visiting tskw.org.
