Best Prosthetic Dance Props New York 2002 - ANTI-GRAVITY
Innovative, swanky, and mind-boggling, ANTI-GRAVITY defies any traditional gymnastics or dance origins it may have. Almost superhuman in stance, Anti-Gravity's artists concern themselves with conjuring graceful and shocking means of hoisting themselves into the air. In fact, much time and money goes into researching new aerial elements to incorporate into their performances. Their latest new aerial prop is the "Anti-Gravity Boot," a custom-designed curving metal-jointed leg extension that allows for unthinkable height and buoyancy, and involves continual synchronized stunt-like leaping. This troupe blurs boundaries between the Olympics and performance art, the athletic and the absurd.
