Event description

Description

PoleCraft is an exhibition of aerial artists who challenge social convention through their defiance of gravity. Organized by the Victoria-based Electra Pole Art Productions, PoleCraft takes place at the Metro Theatre on September 27 and 28, 2019. These evening events welcome a wide array of performers who celebrate magic made through movement, leaving their audiences captivated, curious and spellbound.

Most people know the stories about Salem, and womxn who were accused of being witches with supernatural powers. Throughout human history, these bodies have been both revered and persecuted. And while it seems like this persecution lives simply in stories or long ago pasts, womxn from every walk of life are still discouraged from embracing their power, self-expression and talent. Willfully and often secretly, however, there are those who continue to practice and cultivate their magic. PoleCraft evokes the power rooted in the feminine and explores a transformation that comes from living outside society boundaries. This evening event summons a safety where non-traditional, artistic concepts can be explored together in community.

PoleCraft celebrates the divine witch. Inspired by the incredible community of pole and aerial artists locally and internationally, this exhibition features headliner Tara Meyer, winner of the 2018 Ms. Pole Fitness Olympia title. She is currently touring Europe with the world-renowned Cirque Du Soleil, and is the owner of VogueFit in Winnipeg, Canada.

PoleCraft also welcomes Wendy Lee, an aerial and GoGo performer based in Los Angeles, California. She shares her dynamic craft at BeSpun, an iconic pole dance studio in LA.

Local feature artists include Vancouver Island’s Natalie Fustier (owner of Comox Valley’s Femme Natale’s Pole Fitness), Jane Air (owner of Athena Vertical Dance in Tacoma, Washington), and Kaelyn Schmitt (Founder and Producer at Ignio Circus).

Finally, Electra Productions is also proud to present a diverse range of 18 performers in total, representing studios from across Vancouver Island and Canada. Studios include Luxe Studios (Nanaimo), Femme Natale’s (Courtenay), Circus Freaks (Parksville), Tantra Fitness (Vancouver), Alive (Victoria), Island Circus Space (Victoria), The Rising Circus (Victoria), Saskatoon Pole and Dance Studio (Saskatchewan), 3Sixty Dance and Fitness (Ottawa), and Impulse Studio (Courtenay).
