Amira stilts for all kinds of events, enlivening and enheightening with custom costumes & characters. Perfect for festivals, parades, parties, promotional events, fashion shows and more, this stilt performer will bring a highly entertaining experience for kids and adults alike.
Amira is a woman of many talents! Not only did she make her own costume but she did an exceptionally WONDERFUL job performing at our company's holiday party. It was a sizable venue and there were a couple of changes to the evening's events but she was able to adapt seamlessly. Most of the feedback I received on the party was people raving about how great the entertainment was so f I ever hold an event of this nature again, I will hire Amira in a heartbeat.
Price Range: $200+, various factors to consider!
Gig Length: 30 - 240 minutes
What to Expect
I normally offer "site animation" style performance, where I mix & mingle with an crowd, dancing if there's music, cracking jokes and chatting in character, and many people LOVE to take photos with me.
I also do performance with mask/without talking for a more formal or "enheightened" ambience. Much of the spectacle of stilt performance is in the visual, so I make my costumes as fantastic as possible and appropriate to the event.
Normally I do one, two, three or four sets of 30 - 45 minutes. My rates are based on the duration of performance asked, with considerations like extra costuming, travel, and insurance requirements. I take care to make a clear contract before any event so there is no stress and no confusion!
I have been a professional stilt performer since 2008, and had many fantastic experiences stilting in Toronto, around Ontario, and various other places. Highlights include the Dubai Shopping Festival 2013, touring Ontario with the Pan Am Games Torch Relay, and a wedding on stilts at Burning Man. Since moving to Vancouver in 2016 I have been reaching new audiences in the Lower Mainland, collaborating with Mortal Coil Performance, and connecting with the local stilting community. Please contact me with any questions or interest for your event in BC and beyond!
Additional Booking Notes
I can vary my height from 8' to 10', but with indoor venues a ceiling of 12' or higher is best.
I require a dressing room and some kind of raised seat or low wall on which to put on stilts.
