So. for starters we are now in ‘Lockdown’ in New York City. The next Bindlestiff Open Stage Variety Show will be broadcast to you on the internet. I will try and take some screenshots for those folks who won’t be able to watch. Here is last month’s show in pictures!
Bindlestiff’s co-founder and host for the show Keith Nelson takes the first slot in the show for his ‘Chinese yoyo’ routine.
Maks and Chelsea perform their hysterical antics.
In the spirit of vaudeville Keith takes his time winding the string on his top.
Keith gives an example of how ‘folks’ use to have longer attention spans and looks at the top.
Mariko Iwasa invites an audience member to be part of her performance ‘tea’ ceremony.
The volunteer clad in a Japanese kimono and waiting to sample the tea that Mariko is pouring.
Delaney Bayes performed a beautifully lyrical juggling routine with grace and finesse.
Keith threw a potato into the air and caught on a fork. Nice move!
Ellia Klein was amazing in her contortion act.
Mark Gindick came on stage with a ‘singer’ persona but it changed when Michael Bongar intruded.
And then he recruited an audience member that was blown away by Michael Bongar leaf blower!
Molly Siksin performed on the trapeze with skill and abandonment.
Cassandra Nemser was very vocal (she sang Opera) while escaping from her straightjacket.
Miss 360 performed a deLIGHTful hula hoop routine.
Cleo Carol Knopf sang an original song about her ‘hero’ Bernie Sanders!
Jean-Taé S. Francis performed a charming ‘rola-bola’ act.
Surprising the audience with his Spider-Man costume was aerialist Shawn E. Shawn.
