Rehearsing in a tree at the Otago Museum Reserve ahead of her first performance of The Arboreal Aerialist for the Dunedin Arts Festival 2021 tonight is aerial dancer Chloe Loftus.

Those who stumble upon her 25-minute Museum Reserve show tonight and tomorrow night will see Loftus dancing through and on the branches of the tree, moving in slow motion and illuminated by uplights.

Loftus described her performance as a "love letter to the trees".

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
