I understand that Charlotte Pendragon has started performing an asian mask change act, called Asian Girl. Has anyone seen it yet? Just curios.

Not quite as stark as it might have been, but even so it seems utterly at odds with the times, and likely to engender protest, the kind that doesn't really heighten interest.

Kinda doesn't work without being in full asian costume, as in Jeff's. I hate to bad-mouth Char, but this just takes a great visual play and takes it down to cheap knock-off imitation level. What's with that 'costume'? I would have thought better from Char, with all her experience. I'm hoping the picture doesn't do the act justice.

Man...Char could win a Best Legs contest, that is for sure! A mini is a distraction for me. Talk about misdirection! Ha! She is one hot lady!

Actualy Dougini, The legs on that girl does not look like Char. Her legs are more muscular....

EDIT.... Just looked at your second post that picture is more like her legs

Where is the facepalm smiley?

There's a double whammy on this thread.

Nothing derogatory is intended or achieved by Charlotte by her mask performance. At the very least, this doesn't even come close to the perceived sleights and perceived racism ascribed to Caucasian black face performers.

IMHO, the fact that Charlotte is not dressed up in full Asian costume directs attention away from her and towards the intended focus of the attention, namely, the many mask changes. Additionally, the masks, by having a common theme but being starkly different (and each beautiful in its own right), bring out the artistry of the masks and the performance and heightens audience awareness of the contrast between the many masks...and their underlying culture. Kabuki-type masks are perfect for this type of performance. (Ask Jeff McBride.)

All of the foregoing is just IMHO; your mileage may vary...and probably does. (grin)

I've seen that photo with the masks somewhere before and others from the same shoot where you can see her face. Maybe on her Facebook page or somewhere. It's definitely Char unless her face was photoshopped onto another body but I doubt that. In the photo above though I have to agree with Dougini, with her face being hidden I would guess the performer in that photo was about 20 years old. Kind of a back-handed compliment I know but please don't take that the wrong way Char, you still got it going on.

(Hi there!)
If you check out her Facebook page, there's a photo of her in the same costume doing the linking rings (no mask, of course).
The same page also shows the mask routine picture form above.

My lord how unfair. Why the need to objectify Char in such a way? Certainly she has accomplished enough in performance to get by all that.
