Nagasaki Circus was my experiment with marionettes. The short film was a collaboration between three street performers. Me, an animator-turned-street artist, Lee Zimmerman, a self-depricating puppeteer, and Martin Ewen (also known as "Lurk"), a surreal, cynical, stilt-walking mime who dances on air. This story was an entry in his travel journals. A real day-in-the-life of a cynical, stilt-walking mime.
See his real-life dancing on this behind-the-scenes video: http://youtu.be/Pczi2Qa0iXc
So, this was the collaborative result of three artists in 2007.
I hope you like it. Do what you will with it. Sock it to me.
Sincerely, Rachel Peters.
