On Friday, February 13th, (That’s right, Friday the Thirteenth!) Rachel will be joining Zero Gravity Circus in freeze-your-bum-off Toronto to not only perform her comical fire eating, but also to screen her newest short, animated film, “Nagasaki Circus“. It’s sure to be an eventful night.
As well as extinguishing fire with her FACE, Rachel will also be seen lighting her tongue on fire, her fingers, her lips, and if all goes well… nothing else.
Side note: Somewhere within the immeasurable moment that falls between February, Friday 13th and February 14th (Valentine’s day) lies a celebration Rachel created called, “Valenween’s”. Valenween’s is a celebration for the unlucky in love. It occurs only every few years, and the next one won’t be upon us until the year 2015 (followed by 2026), so treasure Valentine’s Eve, known this year as “Valenween’s“.
I decided it might be nicer to frame my envelopes than to mail them.
Links to friends Rachel loves to brag about:
Musician, Larry Norman (1947-2008)
FILMMAKERS and ANIMATORS
Paul Quarrington (1953 - 2010)

Get glimpses of the marionette filming process and hear Martin Ewen’s take on life as a cynical, stilt-walking mime.
It’s been four months since I hit the road at the Toronto Busker Festival, creating caricatures of fellow performers in chalk and concrete.
