Street Shows 2018

I kept lean and hungry doing shows in the Inner Harbor this summer.  Some nights were absolutely magical.  Some nights were challenging.  All of it kept me humble and strong.  I feel blessed to have this amazing summer street theater a 10 min drive from my place.

New Clown Acts

As part of “Eyes Up”, I had the wonderful opportunity to create two new acts.

The first one, “The Couch” happened by accident.  It just emerged.  I love when that happens.  I am so happy with how it turned out.

And the second one with the working title, “Disaster Act” was so much fun to do.  A lot of the time, I work alone doing solo shows.  It is always such a pleasure to collaborate with world class circus artists.  I brought this concept to the table, and everyone added their delicious flavors to it.  I am also very happy with how it turned out.

“Eyes Up” Photos – Show and Creation

It has been an absolute pleasure to be involved with Ignio Circus and their first production, “Eyes Up”.  It was one of the easiest creative processes I have been a part of.  The cast was flown in from around the globe.  All of them are world class, professional circus artists.

Below are a few select images of the show and creation.  Thank you to Neil Hodge for working so hard on capturing the energy, emotion, and dynamism of the crew.  Video coming soon…

“Eyes Up”

I am honored to be performing in this new, contemporary circus show.  It is always a pleasure to be creating and working with high level circus artists from around the world.

Show Description:

We rely on technology everyday as a vehicle for communication. But what do we do once it drops us off at our destination? “Eyes Up” is about our natural desire to connect; what happens when we look up to find a genuine human encounter right in front of us.  The show is made up of a cast of top level professional circus artists from around the world; their breathtaking physical abilities will have you sitting on the edge of your seat. Through an incredible mix of acrobatics, juggling and comedy we explore and express the beauty and awkwardness of interacting face to face. Come witness our international cast transform an ordinary space into an extraordinary, hilarious and poetic experience of what it is to be human.

About Ignio:

We are a new locally based company focused on creating and producing contemporary circus shows. Through our productions we hope to build awareness and interest for contemporary circus here on Vancouver Island. We strive to produce shows that spark and inspire human connection and creativity.

Singing Tree and Globes Garden

These are two of the prominent ideas that I have been pitching across North America into the holiday market for 2018.  I have already been gaining significant traction with zoos, gardens, designers, and more.  Indeed, I have so many beautiful, upcoming public art pieces that are going to make cracking open these markets in 2019 a breeze.  Enjoy…
