Christina Gelsone As a non-verbal clown and street performer, Christina has performed in festivals in Singapore, Albania, Scotland, Japan, Holland, France, Venezuela, Portugal, and Greece. A former member of Bond Street Theater, she has performed extensively in areas of post-conflict, including Kosovo, Serbia, Macedonia, and Afghanistan.
The pictures above were taken in May, 2007 in Liuzhou, China. I first met Christina on a corporate gig here in NYC; we did interactive entertainment together, and a few weeks later we met again on a cruise ship where we were both performing. I had heard many great things about Seth, but I didn't meet him until about a year ago before getting to know him better during the China trip.
