I cannot find enough superlatives for Cirque Du Papier. Michael was a pleasure to work with. Originally we had planned for Michael to showcase his art as a strolling performer. But as soon as he set up his Gallery of Origami, children and adults alike flocked to see his artistry. He performed nonstop due to the throng of people who wanted to see him. When performance time was over, he graciously agreed to perform until the crowds abated--over 2 hours later-which we happily compensated him for. His engaging style and amazing talent make him a perfect fit for any occasion, and I hope we can have him here again in the future!
Are your event guests suffering from the BTDTs (Been There Done That Syndrome)? Enjoyed all they can stand of balloon art? Heard "pick a card" one too many times? Noticing how old they look in the latest caricature in their collection? Simply tired of the same ol' same ol'? Well, it could be time for something completely different!
With no cards, coins, or twisted balloons, only a paper square and the finesse of a master close-up magician, Michael Roy, Folder Fantastique, brings magic and artistry to your event, amazing party and festival guests with colorful creations of exquisite artistry, elegantly executed right before their eyes. Without missing a crease, Michael Roy simultaneously transforms a single uncut sheet of paper into cool 3D animal caricatures while keeping guests amused with a nonstop stream of offbeat witty repartee and useless (yet strangely fascinating) information, revealing the secrets and history of this magical folding art. Not your grade school teacher's origami, Michael Roy's performances are a Cirque du Papier, a mind-bending, paper-folding, your-world-ain't-flat-no-more experience.
And his mesmerizing MicRo Gallery displays pretty paper party pet caricatures so cool everyone will just have to have one! To "win" a colorful creation of exquisite artistry, elegantly executed right before their eyes, Michael Roy will engage your guests in puzzles, games, riddles, and other attractions and interactivities. The best part? Your guests are always part of the show and may go home with an oh-so-cool keepsake! An artful remembrance of a special occasion.
Whether hanging out with guests at his MicRo Gallery of Origami Art or mingling among event guests, Cirque du Papier performer, Michael Roy, Folder Fantastique is appropriate wherever fine and fun close-up entertainment is needed. Cirque du Papier has been the hit of everything from high-end events, small private parties, to festivals. The fine art of entertainment for the discerning.
