January 4th of 2014 the New York Baroque Dance Company started the year off with an amazing and extremely unique performance at the Allentown Art Museum in Pennsylvania. I had the wonderful opportunity of premiering a costume by Jane Stein (you must check out her amazing website!!). Based off of a performance in the 1640’s for King Louis XIV’s 7th birthday, it was brought to life by the Master of Ceremonies, a two-faced juggler, Scaramouche and myself as the exotic ostrich! Commissioned by Starr Siegele, in collaboration with an art exhibition, and choreographed by Catherine Turocy, this was certainly a night to remember. I’ll post some ostrich pictures here, but keep an eye out for video as it becomes available!
