Artistic Work

Private Events


A-WOL is an extremely flexible group– both in the air and on paper. We have more than 20 professional performers with a wide variety of acts. At any given time, you may see us hanging from the trees in the middle of the forest, dangling from the ceiling at corporate events, and spinning around inside some of Portland’s trendiest night clubs. We've performed for clients including Intel, Nike, Comcast, Cascade AIDS Project, Wieden + Kennedy, Willamette Dental, Adidas, OMSI, The Junior Olympics, and more! Hip yet sophisticated, A-WOL has a versatility of style that appeals to everyone. And– to boot... we are fun, professional, safe, and come packaged together with all the rigging requirements and insurance necessary.

Art in the Dark

A-WOL's Art in the Dark annual performance is a fantastical, illuminated, full-length, evening production set in a unique and rare outdoor theater style setting. Transforming a dirt plot into a performance spot with aerialists suspended from trees, each show is packed with the flavor of the Northwest and a wonderful taste of the talent this area has to offer!  Once you're there, you'll see why A-WOL has grabbed the attention of OPB's "Oregon Art Beat," Travel Portland, and thousands of arts enthusiasts!
