See the project at http://mediastorm.com/training/the-amazing-amy Participating in this documentary was one of the best experiences of my life! I hope I get gigs from it but even if I don't, I'll have memories and a record of my work I can treasure forever. THANKS SO MUCH! Amazing Amy appears on TV on Discovery's Science Channel 'Oddities' Program Season 2: The Horaffe, third segment. See it here! http://science.discovery.com/videos/oddities-the-horaffe-videos/ The Amazing Amy (Harlib) is 56 years old and proud of showing what she can do despite her age. She has spent a life time studying all forms of movement and physical theater and became attracted to Chinese martial arts, acrobatics and Yoga in the early 1980s and parlayed that into a solo performance career that took her to Taiwan and back to her native NYC environs to perform in a wide variety of venues until 1994 when injuries forced her to retire with a disintegrated disc in her spine, torn rotator cuffs in both shoulders and arthritis that necessitated a total left hip replacement in 1998. All that time Amy never stopped her Yoga and so hated not performing, that she's using her extreme flexibility and zany imagination to relaunch her career starting in Mar. 2009! Already The Amazing Amy has appeared at the Downtown Clown Revue, The Bindlestiff Family Circus Open Variety Show at the Galapagos Arts Space, The Lava Dance Co. Night of Renegades Variety Show, the Hi Christina Arts Space, the Ruby Streak Trapeze Studio's Velveteen Rainbow Showcase, Cirque Off! at Triskelion Arts Space, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, The House of Yes, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and The Gong Show Live! at B.
