Cycropia Aerial Dance will once again dance below the boughs of a majestic oak tree at the Orton Park Festival for the debut of their show "Firefly".

Fresh from their hugely successful May show "Alchemy" at the Wisconsin Union Theater, Cycropia brings their astonishing blend of suspended dance and acrobatics to the 34th annual Orton Park Festival for the fifth year. Amidst the hum of cicadas and festival-goers, the huge oak tree will be illuminated against the darkening summer sky and transformed into a stage for aerial dance. The works to be presented include old and new. Several pieces from "Alchemy" will be recreated in the park setting. One new premiering work features students from Cycropia's adult trapeze class.

Produced by Cycropia Aerial Dance at Orton Park, 1100 block of Spaight Street, just 2 blocks off Williamson Street on Madison's east side.

Performances are Friday August 23 and Saturday August 24 at Orton Park. Both performances begin at 8:30 pm and are free. A rain date is set for Sunday August 25 at 6:30pm in the case of a double cancellation only. Seating is first come, first served, so come early to stake out your spot!

Admission: Free and open to the public
