Hey, have you guys seen this? I've never seen anyone use a method quite like this and I think she does it really well. At first I thought it was Astrosphere, but it's not. Kind of cool.

Nice - yes, it is the Astrosphere, with some thought behind the presentation.

I would have to disagree that it is an Astrosphere. The hook-up is very different, though I admit the principles are similar.

I liked it better before she dropped the cloth.

Not bad, but man someone needs to smile.

I agree. Some women believe ignorant fashion designers when they say that the pouty look is attractive. A real man knows that the most attractive thing a woman can wear is a smile. A smile makes a woman more attractive than six beers can! LOL

It's nice to see a magician performing with elegance, style, and forethought.
It is also nice to see a woman magician well represented.
I think her tone and mood work, and don't see the need for her to grin.

This is a thoughtful working of the Astro-Sphere concept
with a slightly altered hook-up that allows some flexibility,
quite simple but elegant.

I think the piece would be stronger at about half the length,
and I wish she took more care with the foulard
rather than just dropping it to the ground with little thought.

At first I thought the ball might not play red-against-red with her costume,
but it does work, as does the white sparkle foulard with the same fan backdrop.

All in all a nice representation,
when the setting may not allow for an all out Okito version.
I would like to see a little more flow and choreography
in her movements WITH the ball,
and as I said, I believe less-is-more, and she could edit down the length.

On the whole, brava!
Nice choices, and some good effort!
Does anyone know her or her other work?

My two-cents,
Walt
