In 2010 I opened Atomic Entertainment with my business partner Robb Wexler. We were hired to performed weekend club shows at Lava Nightclub in Turning Stone Casino. After our first three months the club was ecstatic with our performance, and we were renewed for two more shows staying at Lava for a year. After this long contract we moved into corporate events performing for big names like Intel, Stoli, Redbull, Swatch and the New York City Public Library. Some of our notable achievements were performing the opening number for a MTV show of the Australian band Empire of the Sun, and being an Entertainment of the Year finalist for Spotlight Magazine in 2012.
At Atomic, Robb acted as Artistic Director and I was CEO. I was in charge of all business and project organizational aspects, including HR, project planning, book keeping, taxes, legal, and client relations. I left Atomic in summer 2014, but you can see what they are up to at Atomic's website.
This was our first show at Lava and ran for 3 months. We were 8 performers, including 3 dancers, 2 circus acrobats, 1 character, Robb and myself. We worked in collaboration with CircX who provided half of our costumes. As CircX founder Diana says, it was "One part circus, two parts burlesque, a pinch of class and a dash of trash".
Cirq Evolution was our second show at Lava Nightclub and ran for 3 months. Our amazing cast included rythmic gymnastic Olympian Irina Kasakora. I also created the iPad controlled LED bras for this show. Learn more about them here.
Cirq Evolution Returned
This version of Cirq Evolution was all about fairytales in a post-apocolyptic world. We had fairies, fire and aerials. See more about the making of Cirq Evolution Returned here.
Atomic performed numerous events for clients like Redbull, Stoli Vodka, Swatch, and the New York City Public Library.
