Street performance in Ireland

Performances are anything that people find entertaining. Performers may do acrobatics, animal tricks, balloon twisting, caricatures, clowning, comedy, contortions, escapology, dance, singing, fire skills, flea circus, fortune-telling, juggling, magic, mime, living statue, musical performance, puppeteering, snake charming, storytelling or reciting poetry or prose, street art such as sketching and painting, street theatre, sword swallowing, and ventriloquism

 

Anybody can hit the street and put on a show, but if you put on a great show you could join the ranks of famous performers–Jimmy Buffett, Bob Hope, and the founders of “Cirque du Soleil”, just to name a few–who started out busking. Whether you’re a musician, magician, mime, juggler, clown, or comedian, if you can entertain people, you can call yourself a street performance.As children entertainer jeca the clown and long time on the road of street performance I must to saw that I saw already the best and worst in some of the countries I have been.

I know isn’t more secret that Jeca the clown was born in Brazil, more specific from Rio de Janeiro, a city fully of beauty and very happy party people, here are some interesting facts about my home city:

Rio de Janeiro or simply ‘Rio’ is the capital of the Brazilian State of Rio de Janeiro and the third largest metropolis in the country with a population of 6.3 million people. Part of the city was recognized as a world heritage site in 2012. Read the facts below to find out where and why.

1. Rio de Janeiro is behind Sao Paulo and Brasilia in population but is only behind Brasilia in GDP at US$201 billion.

2. The name ‘Rio de Janeiro’ is Portuguese for ‘River of January’ and was given to the city by the captaincy of the Portuguese Empire in 1565, the date the city was established.

3. Christ the Redeemer landmark on the top of Corcovada Mountain is one of the most recognized features of Rio and has on several occasions been named one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

4. This I didn’t know…Rio has a nickname…Cidade Maravilhosa or ‘the marvelous city’.

5. Brazil’s most famous dance – samba – has its origins from the African slaves that worked in the plantations in the State of Rio de Janeiro.

6. With over 50 kilometers of white and golden sand beaches, Rio is Brazil’s tourism capital.

7. Brazilians are apt to say that if you have not visited Rio’s Christ the Redeemer statue, Sugarloaf Mountain, Ipanema Beach, Copacabana Beach, Sambodromo, Maracana Stadium, and Tijuca National Park; then you have never been to Brazil.

8. Flamengo football club that is from Rio has the largest number of fans in Brazil (and the world) and is considered the team of “the people.” No matter who’s team you favor, everyone seems to respect (or fear) the Flamengo crowd.

9. Do you know Rio’s most popular natives? Well, here is a list; Ronaldo (soccer player), The Gracie Martial Arts Family, Anderson Silva (MMA Fighter), Tom Jobin (Musician/”The Girl from Ipanema”), Vinicius de Moraes (Musician/”The Girl from Ipanema”), and Oscar Niemeyer (architect)…the list can be longer…you just have to type it yourself.

10. There are more than 200 samba schools in Rio. The city gets more than 3 million international tourists every year.

I hope those facts and information helped you to know more about the Street performance jeca the clown and hope see you in you great event, street marketing, corporation event or any kind of celebration that you need a professional entertainer.

“2017 Portlaoise St. Patrick’s Day Parade or 2017 Portlaoise La Feile Padraig is an event not to be missed! This is the perfect opportunity to showcase the best Laois has to offer, to those living locally and abroad, who will descend on Laois to celebrate this very auspicious day.”

2016 Portlaoise St. Patrick’s Day Parade

From up on my perch on my stilts, I could see smiling faces and hear laughter ringing through the streets.  I saw a community- people young and old gathered together to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.  This parade is always close to my heart ever since I started clowning around with the Portlaoise Parade March 17th, five years ago.

       As I handed out high fives and laughter by being who I am: a children’s entertainer, I realized that the biggest high five needed to go to the Portlaoise St. Patrick’s Day Parade committee and the businesses whose fundraising and support make it possible for this day to continue to be celebrated year after year.   The committee being who they are- people passionate about the Laois community and Irish culture, won the well-deserved 1st prize in the Laois Arts, Culture and Heritage Awards. This is what makes me proud to be a part of this event, to be able to bring my passion for bringing laughter and smiles to people’s faces alongside the passion of the Laois community.  Can’t wait for another great year! See you again March 17th!

Smiles! 🙂

Children Entertainer in Kilkenny

As children Entertainer Jeca the clown and artist I must to say that I just love Kilkenny town, it is a town that breathe arts and motivate me in my expression arts too.

I have been doing some clowning around for some birthday parties and communion celebrations but I can’t wait to get a special invitation of a local street event, street marketing or a art festival in this lovely town.

If you you never have been to Kilkenny town here are some information about the town:

                                               This image belongs to photoremedy.me

Kilkenny is a medieval town in southeast Ireland. Its grand Kilkenny Castle was built in 1195 by Norman occupiers. The town has deep religious roots and many well-preserved churches and monasteries, including imposing St. Canice’s Cathedral and the Black Abbey Dominican priory, both from the 13th century. It’s also a crafts hub, with shops along its winding lanes selling pottery, paintings and jewellery.

Hope visit one of my favorite town again soon,
