"I just really never got over wanting to fly as a child."
A Sandboxer since 2014, Evelyn Digirolamo has trained in aerial performance for seven years. During that time, she’s become an instructor and choreographer for aerial silk performance, most notably on Sandbox’s 2015 production, The Little Pilot.
The Swingset is equal parts education and production program — designed to teach aerial silk artistry to new or returning participants, while generating new show material that can be performed as a showcase, or developed into full-scale productions, like Houdini.
We start the creation of our plays with an unh, the guiding question we seek to answer with the show. For Houdini, it’s an exploration of our human desire for metamorphosis; how we seek to change ourselves, our world, and the price we pay in our pursuit.
