Three if by Air

General Mischief Dance Theatre

“Three if by Air” is a brand new production featuring aerial adventures, mind-bending yogis, and the world premiere of Suite Shel, a trio of dances inspired by the poems of Shel Silverstein. General Mischief creates theatrical dance pieces that reinforce the power that joy and laughter have in communicating ideas, and encourage the natural human desire to express oneself through movement.

The production features a company of virtuosic and playful dancers that have performed all over the world. The choreography, by Artistic Director Emily Smyth Vartanian and Lisa Natoli of Lisa’s Bright Ideas, takes on matters both serious and carefree, set to music by Ozomatli, Led Zepagain, and a debut composition by Lizzie Hagstedt. General Mischief has produced performance events at The Connelly Theater, Theater for the New City, Zipper Theater, Medicine Show Theater, and Alvin Ailey, as well as appearing in festivals and dance productions throughout New York City and California.

Known for creating contagious joy through movement, General Mischief Dance Theatre continues to take audiences on high-flying adventures. By combining aerial and modern movement with high-flying bungees, yoga, aerial silk, and countless forms of dance, General Mischief has conjured up a family-friendly, entertaining, playful yet clever show for children and adults alike. “Three if by Air” is made possible in part with public funds from the Fund for Creative Communities, supported by New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
