Detailed Description of Skills

Audiance Participation

 

have had many years experience performing different clown numbers where I ask a member of the audience to be my partner. I use physical contact and eye contact to gain there trust. It is our human dynamic that makes the numbers not just funny but inspiring. Ultimately, it is the him/her who is the star of the show.

Juggling

 

I'm not an excellent juggler, but I can do some simple, club passing.

MimeSound Effects

 

I am not a classically trained pantomime but I can be very specific and expressive in my movements. Making sounds for things helps the illusion. It’s nice having the mime and the sounds to play with as part of the composition; it makes for very strong rhythm and timing.

Harnessed Aerial

 

I have many years experience flying in a 360°, center point clip-in harness. This means that hanging from the end of a dynamic line I have spun, rotated, dived, run on walls, lifted audience into the air... while wet.

Harmonica & Guitar

 

I am self-taught. Slightly proficient. With some practice I can hold down a tune.

Fire-breathing

 

I wouldn’t want to make a habit of doing it, but I can blast a pretty good plume.

Rock-Climbing

 

I am comfortable leading with the gear and hanging out in the vertical world.
