‘The Freestyle Orchestra’ at Mosaïque Vienna!!!

MosaiqueCannot wait to perform with The Freestyle Orchestra for our Vienna debut at Mosaïque!!! Going carnival with “Phat Tuesday” on February 13th at Brick-5, this varieté-style program celebrates excess in all its forms in a final hurrah before Lent rears its dreary head.

Musically, Chanda VanderHart is throwing together a little bit of everything, from the silky tones of soprano Sarah Marie Kramer and seductive sounds of bass Malte Roesner all the way to numbers including dancers, acrobatics, fire, burlesque, magic, costumes and aerial artists from The Freestyle Orchestra and L’Opera Moderne.

The show is moderated by Mama Burlesque herself, Rebecca Greenstein, so expect the unexpected and a whole lot of fun surprise! Musical numbers about gold, gambling, and love-gone-wrong span classical song from Mozart contemporary Vicente Marin y Soler all the way to modern, electroswing creations and DJ Paul Stadler keeping it hot after hours. It’s going to be a weird, wild party!

I will be performing violin and fire as well as an aerial routine and playing/dancing Roxanne with the amazing Roberto Martinelli. See you there!

New fire piece at Mosaïque Wien!

Back for Mosaïque Wien this weekend for a Shakespeare themed Mini-Festival!

Performing violin/fire eating/manipulation alongside one of my partners in crime from The Freestyle Orchestra, violinist/fire artist/acrobat Farid Feyzullayev, for our semi-choreographed version of the solo violin work ‘Fire is in mine ears’ by the seriously talented composer/conductor/pianist Daniel Masmanian (UK/Australia). Our most ambitious fire work to date, we cannot wait to share it with you!!

These things cannot be done without an awesome team; special thanks to Antonio Chorbadzhiyski (safety) and Georgina Oakes (rehearsal support).

Event also features the Vienna Theatre Project, Chanda VanderHart, some brilliant singers and musicians, a distinct possibility of some puppetry and fencing, and catering from the vegetarian chef-duo ‘Food of Love’. Details and tickets here!

Delighted to be joining the team at Mosaïque to reprise the opening show from this season “CIRCUS” under the Big Top in collaboration with Zirkus Pikard.

This Saturday, June 13th at 7PM, we’ll be in the red and white tent at Aupark, Klosterneuburg, joining the crew of Zirkus Pikard for an evening of classical music combined with trapeze, juggling, aerials, fire and a host of other surprises. I will perform excerpts from ‘PyroViolinist’ fireshow with the amazing Chanda VanderHart and other violin madness including Saint-Saens Introduction & Rondo Capriccioso featuring the incomparable Deirdre Brenner as pianist/mime and excerpts from Ravel Sonata no. 2 featuring juggler Alexander Schneller. Popcorn and cotton candy await so come on down, will be a fun night!

Special thanks also to Deirdre Brenner for being my fire safety for the night. 🙂
