Looking for a movie/theater oriented busker/street performer partner/group
Posted August 30th, 2012 - 8:27 am by from Miami, United States (Permalink)
Hello there!

I am seeking someone who is into costumes, makeup, etc. Preferably one who is into Goth, Horror, or any type of costuming with a darker nature. You can be an actor/performer yourself, musician, dancer, magician, etc. The possibilities are endless. My idea is to co-op with each other skills. If you play the violin for example, I can dress up and do an eerie type dance as you play (I'll be dressed in costume and makeup). Or I can paint you up (I'm a special effects makeup artist...one of my many hats) and you can be a character type as you play/sing tunes (for example: Lorne the singing demon from the series Angel; The Cantina Band of aliens in Star Wars). Or just dress up and do some sort of fight scene together. Just throwing ideas. We can decide together what our act/show will be. I'm looking for someone who wants to create something unique that's different than what you usually see for buskers. Something a bit more theatrical or movie-like. I'd prefer someone who'd want to join me as a traveling attraction or show act; basically make our travel money this way. However I am open to playing at a single location as well. The position is open for anyone at least 18 years of age and anywhere worldwide and someone committed to this. Even if you have no act but want to help me organize (assist) and keep an eye out at the acts, I'm open to that too. Just looking for someone who wants to co-op, be creative, make money and have a good time while at it. Contact me if interested, thanks!

P.S. I have been an entertainer since 2006, but new to busking. I'm at a point where I want to travel and entertain on the spot. Pretty much everything I have done has been of a horror or gothic nature from modeling, special effects makeup, costume characters, acting, belly dancing and theatrical fusion dancing. I'd like to possibly put a pantomime type of show if I have more performers. But as mentioned before I dont mind what the act is as long as we have one. Something interesting and different.

Hello :)

I just read through your post and while I am not the type of performer you seek, I was wondering if you'd like to perform during a masquerade ball that I am hosting.

Please let me know if you are interested, it will be on the 27th of October, 2012. It is at an art gallery in Miami, FL.

I hope to hear from you soon.
