Artist in Residence

Pendulum Aerial Arts, a nonprofit contemporary circus organization has been the artist-in-residence at FAIS since 1999. In addition to teaching after-school and physical education classes for FAIS students, the group uses the facility as their permanent training and rehearsal space for their professional company and recreational program. With 40 hanging points for apparatus such as hoop, trapeze and silks, Pendulum takes full advantage of the expansive FAIS gymnasium!

The professional company members dazzle the FAIS and greater Portland community with a weekend of public performances each spring. The multi-talented and captivating company members delight in bringing the joy of being transported to students and audiences alike.
