NEWTONS LADDER aerial dance
Newtons Ladder Aerial Dance create beautiful and breath-taking aerial performances. From flying human butterflies in Alnwick Gardens to site specific aerial at the The Sage Gateshead. Their recent work in Low flying aerial dance has produced intimate and emotive dance theatre. They are specifically interested in producing work that transcends the spectacle of aerial into relatable and moving theatre whilst maintaining the excitement of Big top aerial through breath-taking flying movement inches from the floor, allowing their audience to get up close and personal.
NLAD have been developing a specific aerial language that is unique and highly skilled, incorporating their doubles rope, dance, martial arts and rigging skills, not to mention their unique relationship that has spanned 23 years. This husband and wife duo offer something very special to their audiences.
They have created shows for The Sage Gateshead, Alnwick Gardens and SEAT as well as commissioned work for Dance City. The NLAD team have provided rigging solutions for TV, working on shows for ITV, as well as theatre, adverts, large scale mobile sculptures and counter weight performance rigger for Naughty Boy at the MOBO awards.
