About The Coach

Paper Doll Militia’s innovative approach to choreography and poignant use of theatricality have gained the company the reputation of being pioneers in original aerial theatre. Their pieces seamlessly weave dynamic physicality, aerial arts, and visual theatre. They emphasize the mixture of modern and vintage mediums as well as invented aerial apparatus to create their signature aesthetic; dreamy, whimsical, and dark. Paper Doll Militia are also known for their Aerial Instruction courses, specifically Teacher Training courses, Vertical Theatre Method Master Classes and Aerial Retreats.

The company is owned and operated by Rain Anya and Sarah Bebe Holmes who with their shared vision continue to develop educational programs and create work, each from their home locations of Los Angeles, California (Rain Anya) and Glasgow Scotland (Sarah Bebe Holmes).
