‘Gynoid’ Photoshoot

January 1, 2013

In ‘Gynoid’ I’m exploring movement and manipulation, as well as the relation between the machine and the human body, through hula hoops.

How is our body affected by the props and tools, that we use every day? If our body is the main tool, the machine, what can influence and radically transform its appearance and purpose?

All photos were taken by Jonathan Green, at Mowlem Studios, London. The following shot got us a feature on Hooping.org, the online hub for the worldwide hooping community.

You can watch the trailer for ‘Gynoid’ on my Vimeo page here.

Many thanks to Jonathan Green and Damian Pajak for doing such a great job and making it a  really good fun experience too.

I was invited to perform ‘Atma’ as part of the NYE show organized by the Vanderborght family and Circus Marcel in Rumes, Belgium.

We worked together to create a show that combined exciting and mesmerising contemporary circus with some funny and poetic moments of traditional circus.

‘Atma’ was chosen as the final act of the show, which was very flattering, since the great talent of all the other artists.

All the people involved helped to create an incredible atmosphere that showed how passionate we all are about what we do. A million thanks to the very talented Amaury Vanderborght and his family and all the other friends and artists who made this happen.

More lovely photographs of the whole event are on my Flickr page.

Zombie with hula hoops

‘Italian acrobat Miss Peacock, turned her hula hoops into pure light with a jaw-dropping zombie routine to the tune of Thriller.’  C.J. Lazaretti

This past Halloween I devised a zombie hula hoop act to ‘The Thriller’, that I performed at Proud cabaret, London, as part of The Tassel Club.
