College first-year Anika Lindsay gracefully suspends herself during an aerial performance at Hales Gymnasium last Sunday, April 5. The show, hosted by Oberlin College Aerialists, was titled “Falling Up” and featured a variety of aerial silk acts inspired by American poet Shel Silverstein’s iconic children’s poems. Best known for his collections Where the Sidewalk Ends and Falling Up, Silverstein proved a charming source of inspiration for the aerialists’ daring routines.
