Grinder Performer looking for stages or art cars to SPARKLE

Post by Ammo » Wed Jun 29, 2016 1:55 pm

Hello!

I am looking for stages to add a little dazzle and sparkle on this year! I am camping at Spankys at 2:30/Esplanade. I am a fire burlesque entertainer and will have my grinder and steel to provide either choregraphed or improvise to DJ grinder spark sets. All I need is power and music! I am booked to perform Spankys stage, Stripper Factory and the Cobra Bus. I'd love to perform for you!

Can you maybe explain what a grinder performer is? An introductory video might help, too.

My apologies, I assumed it was so common at this point that everyone has seen it at least once. Here's my promo video.

I strap steel plates to my body, apply an angle grinder and shoot sparks to beats.

These steel sparks, are they totally consumed in mid-air or do they fall to the ground in little cool particles? How much dust or grit is produced by the grinding wheels/discs? If your performance leaves any traces behind, you better have a MOOP plan for containing and cleaning up any by-products of your art.

Having said that, it looks like interesting performance art.

The steel I use on the playa has it consumed in mid air. Any pieces that fall to the stage (which are very few) are swept up with no issues. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? Preferably without the questions as to whether or not I am capable of leaving no trace?

My performance schedule is full for the week. Thank you to those that contacted me and trusted my ability to clean up after myself (as I always have on playa post performance) and my ability to Leave No trace.
