A-WOL Performance Space in Arciform Warehouse
2303 N Randolph

A-WOL explores an artistic navigation of life– the interpretation of one man’s search for intention and purpose. This ambitious show highlights a multitude of aerial apparatus- both traditional and invented- complimented by daring and athletic floor movement, an original music composition by Bryan Free, and a uniquely-designed gigantic floating grid that covers the stage…bringing with it unforgettable images.

Gridlock is a full length, evening production set in a unique and rare warehouse theater setting. The show is enjoyed by all ages.

Gridlock kicks off A-WOL’s 10 anniversary season! A-WOL Dance Collective was founded in 2003 by four dancers. Today, directed by Jen Livengood and Brandy Guthery the company is composed of 10 company members and 2 apprentices. The company performs a blend of aerial and modern dance for audiences year round in their warehouse as well as their signature performance in the trees of the Mary S Young Park, Art in the Dark. A-WOL also offers aerial training to students age 4 through adult, with over 30 aerial skills classes and aerial fitness classes a week to choose from.

    I’m 22 weeks pregnant and wish to pretend that I could be light and airy while marveling at this performance. =)

    I once was a performer of this very art until the ‘accident’. I would please me very much to receive tickets to this event and get over my fear of suspended cloth dancing.

    I LOVE AWOL!! I saw them last year – what a fantastic show. I would love to see this new production, especially since my sister is visiting from out of town. THNX!!

  6. Gretchen April 5, 2013 at 11:58 am #

  14. Jenn St John April 5, 2013 at 12:47 pm #

  17. Glo April 5, 2013 at 3:10 pm #

    I would love to win tickets because I have never experienced anything like this. I love art and music in its various forms, but funds need to go to living and this gets missed!

  18. Carl April 5, 2013 at 4:10 pm #

    I would love to see tickets to this show because I am an amateur aerial dancer. My mom, who has little knowledge of what aerial is all about, is in town this weekend and I would like to show her a professional show of what it is I spend so much time doing.

  32. Toby April 9, 2013 at 8:24 pm #

    My best friend is a dancer, I would love to take her AND I have never seen ANYTHING like this, thanks for the opportunity!

  33. Kiki April 9, 2013 at 10:52 pm #

    I dream of sexily dancing in the air and hanging from strings like a puppet but who controls my own life. I dream of a beautiful acrobatic dance in the clouds. As I dream I’d like to watch those dreams appear before me through this performance.

  34. Lin April 10, 2013 at 10:23 am #

    I am interested in learning aerial dance myself and would live to win tickets to watch a performance like this.

  35. Curtis Jewell April 10, 2013 at 1:19 pm #

    I’d love to experience such and elegant art! It’d be an awesome way see something new!

  36. Brandi April 10, 2013 at 2:21 pm #

  37. Andrea April 11, 2013 at 2:52 pm #

    I SO want to be inspired by this! I could really use the spirit of freedom and beauty that aerial brings with the live music that only adds to the blissfulness!

  38. Theo April 11, 2013 at 3:09 pm #

    My girlfriend does aerial, and would love to go to this. Help a brotha out!

    Seeing a similar show at Burning Man in 2011, I can speak to how amazing this show can be. I have a friend in town and would love to show them the same experience here in Portland.
