The Santa Barbara Centre for Aerial Dance Keeps Flying

The SBCAD, Company in Residence at the CAW, just keeps adapting and innovating to meet the safety needs of COVID, keep dancers in the air, and keep teaching classes for youth and adults. You can find a series of the films they've been creating at, and more about the company and its classes

Lethe Productions Presents:

The Labyrinth Project

A virtual theater/film piece for our Santa Barbara community

It was good having Joe Velasco and Sio Tepper back at the CAW last week continuing the tradition they began with Cuentos del Pueblo, one of the CAW's first arts residency projects. This year they're organized as Lethe Productions, "a collaborative artistic endeavor that bring a multimedia approach to creating and showcasing original work from local Santa Barbara artists."

According to Joe, "The basic premise is to give artists an ongoing platform to showcase their work in a safe space to create community and respond to the events in the worlds around us. A curated group of local artists performed original pieces... including spoken word, dance, theater, and art. Structured around the Winter Solstice, the Labyrinth project allows artists to explore more introspective pieces that deal with the themes of survival, rebirth, and critical hope." 

The finished film will be released online in the coming weeks.

More projects are upcoming. Follow along on Instagram and Facebook for the latest.
