At the beginning of the Aeriosa dance society website we read:
Vancouver-based Aeriosa Dance Society was founded by artistic director/choreographer Julia Taffe in 2001 to manifest art, performance, 21st century culture, and express human perception and sensitivity through dance.
The company’s artistic objectives include creating dance in non-traditional environments, exploring aerial choreography and revealing dance in the vertical realm to new audiences. The company combines contemporary dance technique with expert knowledge of safe rope rigging systems to create three-dimensional performances that re-interpret gravity and respond to the performance location.
The Aeriosa performers started out their performances at the Scotia Bank in Vancouver and have performed on many venues through Canada. They showed their outstanding dancing shows in Taiwan and the US.
Unlike any other dancing groups, Aeriosa skilfully added the third dimension to their performances when magically leaving people in awe, contemplating about the rules of gravity at the service of performing arts wherever their vertical stage was.
The series of shots come from the show Aeriosa gave in the occasion of Vancouver International Jazz Festival in majestic scenery of old fashioned buildings of Vancouver's Gastown.
When at some moment they started their slow descend from the walls of the 3rd block of Water Street, some jazz enthusiasts, instead of watching jazz performers on stage, were turning back their heads up to admire the parallel show that had just started.
