Client Work For Teatro Zinzanni!

BlogTZ3I love the circus.  When I was maybe in second grade, my family took me to one of those circuses that come to towns every summer for a weekend or so.  The acrobats were so cool I wanted to be one, swinging from ring to ring (randomly, I still remember they were blasting the song “Strawberry Letter 23” during the performance).  Shortly afterwards, I checked out a book on the Ringling Brothers from our school library and read it obsessively.  I was so obsessed with it, I stole the book and tucked it under my bed.  But, my guilt over the attempted theft overcame me and I confessed in tears to my parents about wanting to keep the book forever.  Cue to a few breathless weeks later, I had my very own copy of the book – my parents had to special order it from the bookstore at the mall. I still have the book to this day awaiting to hand it over to my kiddos!

So, I was overjoyed when asked by Teatro Zinzanni if I could do some promo work for their new late-night show, Wake the Night.  The cast and crew were just as enthusiastic about their work as I felt when I was a kid — their talents and joy with what they were doing was infectious and made this such a fun shoot to be a part of!

Yes, there are acrobatics.  Yes, there is a lot of dancing.  There’s even, yes, an elephant!  But, you’ll have to check it out to see what I’m talking about….
