Oh what fun! We were asked to put on a show for the annual Krampus festival in Northern Liberties. I’d heard about the event on NPR last year, so was pretty excited. We couldn’t put on a full Lux Arati show due to a whole bunch of schedule conflicts, but put on a bit of a throw-together display with the help of wonderful Brad.
The kids were great and the costumes were amazing. There is a flickr photo pool with some great shots. One of my favorites is this one. That little kid in the bottom right was adorable. Jexi had just done some hooping, and her hoop was lying on the ground next to the stage. I saw the whole thought process as the kid stared at the hoop, inching forward towards it. “Magic came from that… I want to understand how it works!” As the kid leaned down to touch the torch (long cooled, it would have been fine) Jexi pulled the hoop away. Rather than being mad, the kid just looked up slightly disappointed, sad that the chance to touch the magic hoop was taken away. The whole thing was rather adorable.

Last night was a lot of fun. Despite threatening all week to rain, the weather turned out just beautiful. I think we should perform with live drummers more often… huge thanks to Gabrielle for putting on a great show! One of the audience members grabbed some snippets of video. Here’s the beginning of the fan finale piece.
We’ll be part of the Red Square Stage entertainment for Bangarang’s Karnival… Keep an eye out for the lovely Penny Treats and inspiring Iconic Fire- a show not to be missed!
“At Karnival, my lovelies, you are in for a treat that can’t be beat! We have searched far and wide for the brilliantly bizarre to delight and entertain you, ladies and gentlemen. This is all for you, ladies and gentlemen. And you are most fortunate, for we did indeed quite succeed in tracking down the not nearly bombastic, but the truely fantastic. So wake up, ladies and genltemen! I am proud to introduce to you, KARNIVAL.”
