Gerald Carpenter: La Petite Chouette to Take to the Air at Lobero

Aerial dance company will perform Tuesday in a show titled 'Vesna'

The performance ensemble known as the La Petite Chouette Aerial Dance Company will present a show titled “Vesna” at 7 p.m. Tuesday in Santa Barbara’s Lobero Theatre.

Although members style themselves an “aerial dance company,” La Petite Chouette is, in fact, a kind of circus.

The company uses six classic aerial apparatuses, such as trapezes, and, to cite their own explanation, “echoing the spatial awareness of modern dance’s Horton technique, writhing and leaping aerialists take flight, invoking the moodiness of a spring afternoon.”

Well, that sounds like fun, doesn’t it? Besides, the company is a Santa Barbara original.

The performance will be accompanied by live guitar music from Chris Fossek.

Tickets to La Petite Chouette’s “Vesna” performance are $26 for adults and $19 for children age 12 or younger, and can be purchased through the Lobero box office at 33 E. Canon Perdido St. or 805.963.0761. Click here to order online.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
