The former Cirque du Soleil Chinese straps duo has dropped out of our show. They have only a military passport and no papers that allow us to process their visas for Taiwan. Because of the artist database I am building, I already have at least three options for replacements and one of those options is The Contortionist. As it turns out she will be available after August when her contract with Cirque Theatrical terminates, I suggested her as a possible replacement. I haven’t told her anything about the Taiwan project, but I can definitely say that she is a real asset to any project she is involved with, so I mentioned it to The Rocker. We might be able to use her skills in the creation. Contortion, Contact Juggling, Aerial Hoop, Singing, and Tango Dance. I’m not interested in trying to get back with her or anything; this is strictly professional. I could do straps at the same time that she does her hoop number like I did in Shawinigan. That always worked pretty well, the audience likes the two simultaneous aerial acts. I would need about a month to get my number back up to speed, though.
