Aloft Circus Arts Logo

Cycropia welcomes Chicago’s Aloft Aerial Arts for a Silks Workshop and live performance of their show
Brave Space.

Based in Chicago Illinois, Aloft is a nationally-recognized teaching, training and performance space.



Live Performance: ‘Brave Space’



Brave Space is the building of a blanket fort, the act of sneaking under a hoopskirt, an impulsive congregation in the tiniest of tents. Intimate and low tech, this hour-long work of contemporary circus invites the audience to sit nose-to-nose with bold aerialists and acrobats to build the world we want to live in, even for only a few shared moments.

Time: Sunday June 9, 5PM (60 minutes running time)

5048 Tradewinds Parkway, Madison, WI 53718  (select for map)

$25.00 General Admission

Silks Workshop


Workshop information to be posted soon!

Prerequisite: This workshop requires an “intermediate” level of aerial silks experience.


Hayley Larson began dancing at the age of four and through this was introduced to aerial arts and eventually the wonderful world of circus. Although she trains many disciplines including juggling, cyr wheel, and handstands, her focus is in aerial fabric and aerial duo work (on cradle, duo trapeze, and silks) with flyer Rachel Webberman as Duo Filamental.

As a silks artist, her main areas of exploration are fabric theory—creation of new shapes, sequences, and drops through re-imagining aerial basics, and sequencing—seamlessly threading known tricks using traditional and inventive transitions. Hayley brings the movement awareness and creativity of her contemporary dance training to her aerial work, both as a performer and teacher. She is currently based in Chicago, IL where she trains and teaches at Aloft Circus Arts while also traveling to teach and perform throughout the Midwest. Visit for more information.
