Cyr, Stilt-Walker, Balloon-Twister, Juggler, Globe-Walker, Clown, Character, Mask, or a combination of the above!
Hello! My name is Richie Schiraldi, and I am a strolling performer, pop-up performer, and a stage performer comfortable with solo, duo, and group acts. I love to engage the audience regardless of what I'm doing, and I won't hesitate to interact with kids or adults!
I'm available for performance, workshops, or ambiance.
I have a BFA in Physical Theatre from Accademia dell'Arte in Arezzo, Italy in conjunction with Coastal Carolina University. I've been teaching and performing for 6 years, the last three being in Chicago.
Price Range: $100 and up
Gig Length: 45 - 300 minutes
What to Expect
I like to engage the audience and encourage them to interact. I teach kids circus, so I have no problem connecting with kids, whether it's through personal interaction, leading group games, or just goofing around with them. I also enjoy interacting with other performers or entertainers.
As a stilt-walker or clown/character, you can expect me to roam around and interact with guests by taking photos with them, giving high-fives to kids, and joking around with everyone. I can offer juggling or balloon twisting as a secondary skill while stilt-walking, as well.
As a Cyr Wheel performer, I can give approximately a five-ten minute performance of a serious or a character act. If there is enough room, I can perform Cyr atmospherically.
With a BFA in Physical Theatre From Accademia dell'Arte, in conjunction with Coastal Carolina University, Richie specializes in Physical Theatre, Circus Arts, and Strolling Performance.
He has had extensive experience and training in Comedia, European Clown, Slapstick, Circus Arts, and solo and ensemble devised theatre.
He has been teaching and performing professionally for five years.
