Sky Candy aerial arts collective is making its Austin debut with a cirque noir-style adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairy tale, “The Red Shoes,” May 6 – 8, 2011, at the ND at 501 Studios in Austin.
Conceived and directed by Sky Candy co-founder Chelsea Laumen, “The Red Shoes” follows the story of a young girl seduced by a pair of red shoes fit for a princess as she descends through the ranks of hell. Aerial acrobats, dancers and puppeteers interpret the classic story through a blend of traditional circus acts like trapeze and aerial silks, dozens of shadow puppets and a single giant marionette.
