THE AMAZING AMY WINNER OF FIRST PRIZE IN THE JULY 31, 2010 CONEY ISLAND TALENT SHOW! CIRCUS FREAKS AND SIDESHOW GEEKS CATEGORY! The Amazing Amy (Harlib) is 59 years young, and has spent a lifetime studying various forms of movement and physical theater. She 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. In 1994, 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 used her extreme flexibility and zany imagination to re-launch her career in March 2009. The Amazing Amy has appeared in variety shows and dance jamming with live bands and musicians all over the Metropolitan area, most notably in The Gong Show Live! at B. B. Kings and at The Cutting Room in NYC. Christine Dempsey Christine is a puppeteer, puppet builder, props artist, and art educator. She received her BFA the School of Visual Arts, where she studied Graphic Design, with a focus on toys, packaging, and functional sculpture.

Christine is also a repeat alumnus of the O'Neill National Puppetry Conference in Waterford, CT. She has performed in puppet slams throughout the country and is currently working throughout New York building fantastical things. “Crepe” is a love story exposing the secret life of the baked goods in your local coffee shop. Arlee Chadwick "Perrr-fect Tango." A cabaret marionette piece . A sexy dance between a cat and a ball of yarn called "Perrr-fect Tango." Ben Durocher is a multidisciplinary theater artist.
