The new site-specific aerial dance work will be performed September 9th through 19th on The Long Center’s City Terrace, with the dancers descending over the heads of the audience.

Austin-based Blue Lapis Light returns to The Long Center for Heaven~Earth~One, a new site-specific aerial dance performance designed to carry the audience on a visual journey of transcendence.  Performed outdoors on The Long Center's City Terrace, the work will be performed September 9th through 19th.
    
The Austin nighttime skyline will serve as the backdrop for this mesmerizing show, which features dancers performing on the terrace ring, columns, aerial silks, zip lines and plaza of The Long Center’s City Terrace.  Zip lines stretch from the roof of the theatre building down to the terrace ring, allowing dancers to descend over the heads of the audience.
    
Since 2006, Blue Lapis Light has transformed prominent and historic buildings in downtown Austin into uplifting works of beauty. Heaven~Earth~One follows the ongoing mission of Blue Lapis Light to create transcendent works of beauty that are designed without religious denomination and are prayers for the planet.  Using aerial techniques informed by classical, interpretive and modern dance, Blue Lapis Light challenges physical limitations and inspires audiences with a sense of wonder. 
    
Performances will run Sunday, September 9th, through Wednesday, September 19th.   There will be no performances on September 13th or 16th.  Regular performances will be 9 p.m. to 10 p.m., with tickets ranging from $15 to $55.
    
Sunday, September 9th, is "Pay-What-You-Choose Night," and the performance will begin at 10 p.m.  The Tuesday, September 11th performance will feature a pre-show musical performance from Mother Falcon at 8:15 p.m.
    
The Long Center for the Performing Arts City Terrace is located at 701 Riverside Drive, at the corner of Riverside and South First Street.  Tickets are available at the Long Center Box Office, by calling (512) 474-LONG (5664) and online at www.TheLongCenter.org.  For more information, visit http://BlueLapislight.org.
