Contorting for Halloween Events!
I had so much fun working as a contortionist for some fun Halloween events! I had a spooky time working as a creepy mime contortionist at a Halloween Bar Mitzvah Event, and as a creepy doll contortionist at a Halloween Family Event! It was my first time experimenting with creepy makeup for the second gig, and I had so much fun trying out a new look!
I will be playing the part of a demon, Gawi, in the play "Gawi" by Nina Ki for Something Marvelous Productions' Night of New Works. "Gawi" is a 10 minute play that is being directed by Cage Pierre, and our task was to put together this play, get set pieces, and provide our own costume pieces within 6 rehearsals to put all together for one night of performance. There will be 5 other new works/plays premiering alongside "Gawi".
