Sans Souci Studios and the PUJA Gods and Monsters Dance Concert



Willow Chang http://www.willowchang.com/ and Passport Productions presented the annual PUJA Gods and Monsters dance concert on June 6 and June 7 at the WCC Paliku Theatre in Kaneohe, HI, which included performances by Anasma from France, Meissoun from Switzerland, Eduardo Rodrigues from Argentina as well as an appearance by Sans Souci Studios' wolf mask "Sneer"! I was just thrilled to pieces to have had my work included in this performance. I think right now I'd consider it a high point in my career!

Check out photographer Joe Marquez' beautiful pictures of my mask in the performance:

The dancer wearing the mask is Eduardo Rodriguez from Argentina. I am just amazed at how his performance has transformed the mask into something so completely beyond what it was when it left my studio. Eduardo Rodriguez is currently on tour with Cirque du Soleil's Saltimbanco.

This brings tears to my eyes! Congratulations! I love Saltimbanco, I saw it in Columbus, OH and listen to the soundtrack often. I enjoy just about anything by Cirque du Soleil. Your masks seem a perfect fit to their style aesthetic...hmmm...I wonder if they are watching....
