Photos from Grounded Aerial 

Brooklyn-based aerial dance troupe Grounded Aerial premiered a new work Friday night as part of the Rochester Fringe Festival's big Friday on the Fringe event. Martin Luther King Jr. Park in Manhattan Square was packed with people craning their necks to watch the dancers leap, flip, and glide off the side of the 21-story One HSBC Plaza building.

In the dreamy, flowing performance, a wizard standing on the park's "Tribute to Man" sculpture, and surrounded by members of BIODANCE, cast spells to conjure the dancers onto the side of the building and conduct them through a four-part program. With a little bit of glee in his movements, the wizard also joined his creations on the side of the building for two performances.

With plenty of spins, jumps, and arching swings, the Grounded Aerial dancers made the performance look easy and fun (though I can't imagine the coordination and strength needed to make those moves).
