Sky Candy aerial arts collective announced today its next theatrical production, "Land Without Evil," based on Matthew J. Pallamary's award-winning historical novel from a true story, will run from December 8 - 16, at the historic Stateside at the Paramount.  PBS will film the show's rehearsals and performances for their series, Arts in Context, premiering nationally in January 2013. 

The novel, adapted for stage and sky by innovative Austin directors Agent Red and Sky Candy founder and artistic director Chelsea Laumen, is produced in collaboration with Executive Producer Jacki OH of The Art Department school of fine art. "Land Without Evil" explores a boy's conflict between the spiritual beliefs of life in the Mission and the visions of his father, the shaman of a threatened tribe, forced into a perilous journey through the rainforest in a quest for the mythical Land Without Evil. With a narrative richly told through aerials and acrobatics, dance, flow arts, ASL, music, and vocal performance, this visually dynamic show will feature stirring, new music and live performance by local artists, including SORNE, and ground-breaking video-mapping by internationally renowned projection artist Joao Beire. 

Mario Troncoso, curator for the PBS series, says "Sky Candy is one of the best acts in town. As soon as I was hired to curate an entire Arts in Context season, they were on the top of my life. Sky Candy is visually spectacular and Matthew's story is going to be an amazing journey for both the performers and the audience. I can't wait to see it"

The show will run on two consecutive weeks.
