Astraeus Aerial Dance Theatre: Terminal 2, Sunset Cove (Post-Security) @ San Diego International Airport

The Performing Arts Residency Program provides a platform for the development and performance of new work that simultaneously enriches the airport experience for customers and cultivates the regional performing arts community. Over the course of Astraeus Aerial Dance Theatre’s six-month residency in 2018, spectators can expect contemporary dancers, acrobats, and interactive encounters to enliven the San Diego travel experience.

Astraeus Aerial Dance Theatre’s mission is to create original, contemporary performance art through storytelling that fuses the traditions of ballet, dance theatre, and cirque nouveau. Astraeus Aerial Dance Theatre was founded in 2015 by aerialist and former California Ballet Company Principal Ballerina Jennifer Curry Wingrove, and has since received top-honor awards such as “Best of Fringe”, “Outstanding World Premier”, and “Outstanding Circus or Aerial” for their full length productions. Based in San Diego, Astraeus boasts a company of professional dancers and aerialists who are passionate about igniting imagination in audiences and sharing their art with the world.
