On May 1, 2009, The Anunnaki Project will present Daedalus Rising, a celebratory performance recognizing the organization’s 10-year anniversary. All are invited to join in the maypole dance and witness performances by members of The Cabiri performance troupe and their students. May Day will also mark the debut of Daedalus, the organization’s freestanding aerial dance structure. Daedalus (made possible by a 2008 grant from King County 4Culture) will stand an imposing 19’ tall and 30’ wide, and can support up to six aerialists.

In addition to awe-inspiring displays on Daedalus, the event will feature stilt walkers, fire performers, and several theatrical works from the organization’s repertoire. Choreographer Christl Marcontell has returned to the organization for the epic At the Dawn of Ch’u, and choreographer Erin Simons will present her first work with the company in Benandanti. Guest performing artists and musicians include The Red King (Portland, OR), The Radost Folk Ensemble, Let’s Dance! House Band, Cirque du Flambe founder Maque daVis, Dyno the Aerialist, and Zita the Aerialist.

The event is free to the public and will be held between 6:00 and 9:00 p.m. at the south end of Cal Anderson Park, located in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. The main performance will begin at 7:00 p.m.
