The Gala Shows Page 3 - International Contortion Convention Las Vegas 2011
Fugazi - a famous act by Stéphan
Choiniere and Angelina Puzanova. These shots were frame-grabs from my video (watch on Youtube; also see Tige Young's video).
Overall, it was my favourite act at the whole Convention, because of
its great dramatic qualities and highly expressive presentation.
We were very privileged to see this renowned act, created by
Stéphan Choiniere of the duo "body2body". It has been seen in over 1000 shows of Zumanity (Cirque du
Soleil). Stéphan is a world-class
acrobatic dancer and aerial artist, and is also a scholarship NCAA
gymnast, circus act choreographer, stunt man, and model. As a 10 year veteran and principal
performer with Anti-Gravity, Stéphan has appeared in The
Metropolitan Opera House, Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall for
MTV's Video Music Awards, as well as performing nightly at the award ceremonies
of the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City.
Burri from Berne (Switzerland) arrived to us fresh from her triumph of
coming second in "Switzerland's Got Talent", where she performed
"Goldeneye" which she performed for us too. A great act and
a great performer!
