Jo Kreiter on the art of aerial dance

Oct 1, 2015

Choreographer Jo Kreiter is the artistic director of Flyaway Productions, an aerial dance company that's performed on a chandelier on fire, an umbrella, and a construction site. Their latest performance tackles the issue of wage security for women in the garment industry.

Kreiter spoke with KALW's Jen Chien, who has collaborated with Kreiter as a dancer in past projects, about making dance off the ground.

KREITER: "With this piece we are dancing on four different buildings, and that’s an impossible gift we wouldn’t be able to recreate in a theater space."

Needles to Thread: Dancing Along These Lines in Continuum Alley will be performed Thursday (10/1) through Saturday (10/3) and again next weekend in San Francisco's Tenderloin neighborhood. Listen to Jo give her picks for cool arts happenings around the Bay this weekend over at our new segment, Sights and Sounds.
