There are many tales regarding the mythical powers of
the Raven. This aerial performance, depicts the journey
from childhood, to adulthood.
The Circus Aerials performs an adaptation of the Raven and the First Men was inspired by Bill Reid's  sculpture, "Raven and
First Men". (This magnificent work can found in the University of British Columbia Museum of Anthropology and is part of the
lore of Haida Qwaii people, from the West Coast of British Columbia.) These are photos of our aerial performers at a gala dinner

Act 1: Raven finds some clay-like creatures trapped in a clam shell. Destined to become the first men of world, Raven coaxes
these timid creatures from their shell. Soon bored, Raven searches for the female counterparts to amuse himself. This act is
performed in an Aerial Cradle.
Act 2:  Raven finds the females trapped in a chiton shell.
He teaches them some of his tricks and unites the females
with the males. Aerial performance is done in Aerial Hoop.
Act 3:  As the creatures mature and develop they shed their clay coverings and adopt
more elaborate coverings. Raven is forevermore entertained by the interactions of the
humans. The final Act is a duet on Aerial Silks (Aerial Tissu, Aerial Fabric)
