Sky Candy’s seventh full-length production is an avant garde aerial dance exploration of gender identity and self-worth and represents a return to the company’s roots.

“Swings Asunder” will examine gender duality versus fluidity and how we struggle to fit the molds of masculinity and femininity through life’s rites of passage.

The aerial dance production will draw from the lyricism of modern dance movement as well as the stylized, precise movements of gesture to create a world where gender roles shift fluidly within the same body and blow up to extreme proportions.

Info: 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, Monday and July 2-3; 2 p.m. Saturday-Sunday. $10-$50. The Long Center, 701 W. Riverside Drive. thelongcenter.org.
