FLEXIBLE FEMME PERFORMS FLOWING FEATS OF FLEXIBILITY THAT FEW FOLKS CAN ACHIEVE AT ANY AGE LET ALONE AT OVER 50 YEARS YOUNG!
You can HAVE A FIRST PRIZE WINNING CIRCUS FREAK AND SIDE SHOW GEEK, Yoga Contortion Dancing in your shoots/events/shows. My skills are as inspirational as they are entertaining and a great promo/publicity asset. My uniquely, spectacular movement talent is guaranteed to WOW the crowd! My movements work with any genre of music. Amazing Amy is the ONLY Contortionist in the world who has created Yoga Contortion Dance acts with special themes and characters, in any style for any occasion, and offers a large repertoire (all acts run approx. 6-7 minutes in length). Also, I offer CONTORTION DANCE IMPROVISATIONAL JAMMING to YOUR music live or recorded! I fearlessly perform with music or musicians and on the spot, in the moment, flexibly freestyle improvise to ideally 7-8 minutes or more of music. No rehearsal time necessary, no fuss! This has never failed and audiences just love it! I only need a small space of 4’ by 8’ to move in which means I can dance in almost any venue! My movements to YOUR music, will dazzle the audience with an unusually different added visual dimension, like never before! My basic black contortion costumes can be ornamented with sequins in any color of the rainbow. Many videos available on my website.WINNER OF FIRST PRIZE IN THE JULY 31, 2010 CONEY ISLAND TALENT SHOW!

I am more than eager to perform my act as is or to blend it in and combine my skills with other acts to meet the presenter's needs. The Amazing Amy (Harlib) is over 50 years young and proud of showing what she can do despite her age. She has spent a life time studying all forms of movement and physical theater and became attracted to Chinese martial arts, acrobatics and Yoga in the early 1980s and parlayed that into a solo performance career that took her to Taiwan and back to her native NYC environs to perform in a wide variety of venues until 1994 when injuries forced her to retire with a disintegrated disc in her spine, torn rotator cuffs in both shoulders and arthritis that necessitated a total left hip replacement in 1998. All that time Amy never stopped her Yoga and so hated not performing, that she's using her extreme flexibility and zany imagination to relaunch her career starting in Mar. 2009! Already The Amazing Amy has appeared at the Downtown Clown Revue, The Bindlestiff Family Circus Open Variety Show at the Galapagos Arts Space, The Lava Dance Co. Night of Renegades Variety Show, the Hi Christina Arts Space, the Ruby Streak Trapeze Studio's Velveteen Rainbow Showcase, Cirque Off! at Triskelion Arts Space, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, The House of Yes, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and The Gong Show Live! at B. B. King's, NYC. The Amazing Amy's Yoga Odyssey was part of the ensemble show Flight 18 running Thurs.-Sun. from Mar. 6 - April 4th at the South Street Seaport. http://www.flight18.net/ http://www.tribecatrib.com/news/2010/april/566_flight-18-lifts-off.html Amy is also a lifelong, avid reader of SF and fantasy literature, art and graphic novels - and loves to indulge in her passion for reading and cinema (especially the silent clowns). She lives in Chelsea and welcomes intelligent feedback and discussion about the genre and the arts. Other enthusiasms: cats, Star Trek and Star Wars, archeology / anthropology / paleontology, folklore and mythology, genre films, science for intelligent laypersons, and memoirs / narratives as literature.
