CARIBBEAN FESTIVAL 2018

 

World Rivers Day, Langley B.C. 2018

METEOR WATCH

This magical event is sponsored by Metro Vancouver. It is called ‘Meteor Watch‘. It took place in  Abbotsford Regional Park in 2017 & 2018. Myself and Mehlinda Heartt (Two Amuse) wrote and directed this event “Night Magic“. The performance is both educational and interactive. Mehlinda (Moonlight Fairy) plays her original music on her harp, Shoulin Young dances as the Forest Fairy while Angela Brown portrays a silly Moth ‘Milly Moth’. We use projections on the inflatable where the story unfolds. Shadow puppets appear animated by the audience. There is lots of interaction and fun for all.

 THE NYLON ZOO IN WHISTLER B.C.

 

NYLON ZOO DRAGON IN WHISTLER B.C FOR STREET ENTERTAINMENT

I have been presenting my Nylon Zoo in Whistler B.C. or the children’s festival and for street entertainment since the year 2000.

This year, I was back again at the Children’s Art Festival, a wonderful treat for the whole family and for Street Entertainment on August 22 – 24th 2018.

“As usual, your performances were tip-top and it was great to see you!” Anna Solich, Former Whistler Street Entertainment Coordinator, Whistler Arts Council, B.C.

 BUCKLEY VALLEY EXHIBITION, SMITHERS B.C.

In August 2016, my son, Casey Mons, and I were at the Buckley Valley Exhibition. We had one of Evelyn Roth’s fabulous creations; my hand-made inflatable salmon and costumes – animals and plants for parades and dances.

The photos were taken by Casey Mons.

The song (Silver Water) was written and sung by Angela Brown & Stumpy the puppet and arranged by Deva Neil Depodesta and Casey Mons.

“At the 97th Annual Bulkley Valley Exhibition, Angela performed both as “The Ta Daa Lady” and as Angela Brown’s Nylon Zoo. She delighted our audiences with her engaging and positive personality, and the kids especially enjoyed the chance to dress up in crazy and colourful costumes and go inside the inflatable salmon as part of the Nylon Zoo. Angela is an incredibly enthusiastic, professional and talented performer!” Tirion Grice BVE Smithers, B.C.


PACIFIC RIM WHALE FESTIVAL

The Nylon zoo was in Tofino and Ucluelet with my long and sleek Big Blue Whale with her baby Whale attached. The Ta Daa Lady also offered two storytelling workshops as part of her package.

“Angela Brown is incredibly professional, fun and wonderful to work with. Hire her for your children’s entertainment. If you want great entertainment and an educational experience for your children, hire Angela for your event. She brings great entertainment for all ages! Children under the age of thirteen were all entertained!”  Gillian H. Nicol Former Festival Coordinator, Pacific Rim Whale Festival

“Great job, as always Angela – I just love the energy, creativity and color you add to the Festival.” Dorothee Birker, Innovex Events, Kelowna B.C.

Kispiox Music Festival Hazelton B.C.

“Angela Brown, and both her shows: “The Ta Daa Lady”, and her very impressive “Nylon Zoo”  have been the highlight of our Kid’s area and  stage for two consecutive years. She is hugely entertaining and engages the youngsters at some many levels, from sheer brilliant slapstick comedy, thoughtful (but always humorous). There seems to be something for everyone.  She engages her audience all times, hosting a storytelling dance and costume workshop and then leading the group on a parade through the grounds. Very impressive! It would be hard to recommend a more professional, impressive, and entertaining children’s performer than Angela Brown.”  Todd Stockner, Artistic Director, Kispiox Valley Music Festival, Hazelton B.C.
