Innovative circus and dance creations Specializing in suspended dynamics and honest illusions

Allie Cooper began learning the fundamentals of aerial work in Santa Cruz, California in 2008. Her honest style has developed to utilize momentum and natural pathways and to embrace functionality.  She has worked closely with Kevin O’Connor and she has supplemented her training with a study of the movement theory Axis Syllabus.  Allie has traveled extensively in Europe and has had the privilege to share and learn from the artists who inspire her most.  Allie has performed and taught across the United States, Europe, Central America, and Asia. Most recently she performed at the Envision Festival in Costa Rica, Moisture Festival in Seattle, and Lucidity in Santa Barbara.  She also taught workshops for the Dia Mundial del Circo 2012 in Mexico City. Allie continues to be inspired by the constant innovations in circus worldwide and is grateful to be a part of it.

"Always Entertaining"- TIME OUT

"The Ann Magnuson of our generation"- Papermag.com

Anna Copa Cabanna is an Australian showgirl icon who has performed her choreography, played her xylophone, and rollerskated in venues around the world. She was the face and twirling body of THE DEBASER on The Pixies "Doolittle Tour", sings in an ACDC cover band and the celebrated Loser's Lounge. She is equally known as the official go go dancer of the New York Rock and Roll Underground.

Anna was recently named one of "10 offbeat artists keeping the old, weird New York alive" by Falvorpill along with Yoko Ono and Bill Cunningham.

The Anna Copa Cabanna Show (Joe's Pub), her multi-disciplinary homage to television specials of the 1970's, has captured the imagination of punk royalty, celebrities, various magazines, blogs and many a teenage boy.

Anna's primary goal is transporting the audience to a world of glamor, humor, overly earnest but beautiful dancing, and classic rock and roll!
The truth-in a sequin leotard.

Anna has collaborated with some of NYC's most exciting and eccentric performers including Fred Schneider, Ursula 1000, Jeffrey Lewis, James Chance, Joe McGinty, Corn Mo, Kid Congo Powers, The Pixies, Lenny Kaye, Tommy Ramone, Jonathan Toubin, The Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players, Flaming Fire, Andrew WK, The Electric Mess, and Les Sans Culottes.

Her special brand of vintage go-go dancing, pretty punk songs and extravagant outfits have been featured at diverse venues including Joe's Pub, Highline Ballroom, The Slipper Room, Bowery Ballroom, Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, Brooklyn Bowl, MassMoca,The Knitting Factory, Green Room, Le Poisson Rouge, Pianos, Pete's Candy Store, Santos Party House, Cakeshop, Galapagos and many more.

Anna's unique blend of cabaret, camp, and cover songs with a punk aesthetic has rocked diverse audiences from popular New York parties like Motherfucker and ATLANTIC ANTIC, to a Rock & Bowl in South Jersey to international audiences all over Europe.

An established singer-songwriter in New York City, she reflects on everyday issues with her lil xylophone, voracious voice and fabulous imagination.

Andrew Dasz (Gustavo Andres Rilo Lacquaniti) was born on May 29th, 1977 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Going by the name Andrew Dasz, he began training in Tae Kwon Do (ITF) at the age of 10 after being inspired by watching Chuck Norris on TV. His studies continued on in 1993, where he practiced Ving Tsun Kung Fu and Hung Gar.

In the same year, Andrew began working as a model for martial-arts related mediums. This created an interest in working with cameras as well as other types of media.

In 1997, Andrew moved to São Paulo, Brasil, and continued training Ving Tsun Kung Fu under Master Leo Imamura, at Moy Yat Ving Tsun Martial Intelligence.

Dasz moved to Madrid, Spain, in 2005 to work with his twin bother at a fight choreographer's group. He also began taking acting and modeling courses the following year to expand on his abilities both on and off the screen. Using the skills that he had acquired over the years, Andrew was able to become a fight choreographer, traveling around the world and doing what he loved.

Since then, Dasz has trained several actors while appearing in several films himself. He currently lives in Hong Kong where he is a personal trainer as well as martial arts instructor, where he teaches various martial arts to eager students each day of the week.

Andrew has trained in Tae Kwon Do, Ving Tsun Kung Fu, Hung Kuen, Lion Dance, Aikido, Kick Boxing, Muay Thai and Boxing. He also studied the Frank Dux System of stretching and can speak Spanish, Portugese, English and basic Chinese. He hopes to continue working in the film industry to hone his skills and create more of his own project, including a sequel to his film Stunt Games.
