The Amazing Amy (Harlib) is over 60 years young and proud of showing what she can do despite her age. She has spent a life time studying all forms of movement and physical theater and became attracted to Chinese martial arts, acrobatics and Yoga in the early 1980s and parlayed that into a solo performance career that took her to Taiwan and back to her native NYC environs to perform in a wide variety of venues until 1994 when injuries forced her to retire with a disintegrated disc in her spine, torn rotator cuffs in both shoulders and arthritis that necessitated a total left hip replacement in 1998. All that time Amy never stopped her Yoga and so hated not performing, that she’s using her extreme flexibility and zany imagination to relaunch her career starting in Mar. 2009! A right hip replacement in Jan. 2015, dislocated in April 2015 has not stopped her! Already The Amazing Amy has appeared at the Downtown Clown Revue, The Bindlestiff Family Circus Open Variety Show at the Galapagos Arts Space, Cirque Off! at Triskelion Arts Space, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, The House of Yes, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and The Gong Show Live! at B. B. King’s, NYC and at The Cutting Room, NYC.
Amazing Amy offers unique theme and character-based contortion acts for any occasion and also can flexibly freestyle to any genre of music live or recorded.
