Aerial Dance and Parkour

On Wednesday, January 31 Fishbon Event Lab operatives descended on the Pescadrome for a special evening of Aerial Madness. Dominique reviewed the history and current state of the Parkour World with a series of videos showing international luminaries practicing the amazing art. Nicholas then showed clips of local Parkour-istes flying through Santa Barbara and Mammoth, and took questions from interested Fishboners. Following the Parkour segment, Dominique presented clips from early and more recent Aerial Dance pieces and described the "aerial grid" planned for the Fishbon Pescadrome.
