ASTRO DOVES – Inner Working / Outer Working
August 4 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm$15.00 - $20.00
Astro Doves’ Inner Working / Outer Working is a lo-fi multimedia landscape featuring a range of
dance and aerial performances. Light, sound, movement, form and concept respond to one another to create
interconnected systems spanning artists, environment and audience.
Any good landscape offers a sense of perspective and of dynamic interaction between elements. Likewise, the
performers will interact with each other and various apparatuses playing with levels of reciprocity and point of view. The
audience will be immersed in a mix of perspectives as artists collaborate between dance, acrobatics, music, video and
visual effects. Inner Working / Outer Working reflects the emergent choreography of natural systems.
Astro Doves is a Los Angeles based aerial team consisting of Elli Williams & Elise Angell, who specialize in the aerial
arts, performing on silks, hammock, lyra, cube and other apparatuses, with high flying fun that is the perfect mixture of
beauty and peril.
Astro Doves is applying combined professional experience in modern dance, music, fine art and acting to move deeper
into the abstract, pushing the collaborative process and interacting with light and sound. Astro Doves are also resident
aerialists for Bootie LA and can be found performing and teaching in California and beyond. They often work in tandem
with other performers and sideshow acts, exploring themes like Outer Space and The Old West, or embodying characters
like Spring Nymphs and Robots. The experiences range from sultry and playful to powerful and expressive with some
protest thrown in, often breaking the fourth wall.
Jason Sanfillipo & Jacqueline Lobdell joined this collaborative effort to create Inner Working / Outer Working,
bringing years of creative experience to the show. Jason has trained and performed in the aerial arts for over 15 years
and naturally transitioned into professional stunts for TV and films as well as rigging for large scale live shows.
Jacqueline brings a diverse background in dance, circus and aerial arts, equestrian vaulting, and theatre arts.
