Burlesque at the Beach

Coney Island: Theater and Performance-
Summer is drawing to a close and what better way to spend those last warm evenings than at the beach?

Last weekend I was invited to perform at Coney Island's Burlesque at the Beach with Epstein & Hassan a.k.a. The Black & The Jew.
Some of the performers featured were The Great Fredini and the lovely Remy Vicious.
Coney Island USA is located at 1208 Surf Avenue in Brooklyn.
See you by the seaside next Summer!

Castle of Imagination

Poland: Performance-

I've just returned from presenting work at Castle of Imagination: the International Performance Art Festival in Poland. The festival began in Northern Poland in Ustka and Slupsk then continued to Torun and Krakow.

The festival featured 35 artists from 13 countries: from Israel (Yaron David, Beni Kori, Yaacov Chefez - video), USA (Greg Walloch, Rose Hill, Peter Grzybowski - video), Germany (Parycja German, Patrick Jambon, Alexandra Gneissl), Ireland (Anne Seagrave), Italy (Giovanni Fontana), Poland (Karolina Stepniowska, Ewa Rybska, Wladyslaw Kazmierczak, Dariusz Fodczuk, Wojtek Kowalczyk, Danuta Nawrocka, Karolina Wiktor, Aleksandra Kubiak, Wicza, Paweł Kwaśniewski, Anna Syczewska), Czech Rep. (Jiri Suruvka, Ivanna Obstova), Canada (Maria Legault, Shannon Cochrane, John Boehme), Finland (Leena Kela), Latvia (Group AUSEKLIC / USINS), Holland (Peter Baren), Egypt (Omar Ghayat), Belarus (Denis Romanowski).

Meeting everybody at this festival and having the privilege of experiencing their work was profound in my life in ways words can't express. It is something special that I will remember forever.

Stay tuned for another Blog entry for Castle of Imagination.
