Coach Caye & Dava have prepared a double lyra act with some surprising twists for our Séance Cabaret. We sat down with Coach Dava to learn more about her act.
What is this act about?
Dava: I’m a werewolf and I’m trying to turn the beautiful lunar woman, Caye, into a werewolf. I don’t think anyone will have ever seen an act like this before. Caye came up with the idea over the summer and we’ve been working on it since then.
How long have you been training?
Dava: This is my first real cabaret performance, but I performed in the Circus Lab’s Where the Concrete Ends, Dreams Begin show. I’ve been taking dance all my life, and adding parkour and aerial classes to my skill set through Acro – I’m excited to create an act that combines all these elements. Caye has performed several times and in last year’s cabaret, so I’m looking to her to show me the ropes.
What’s the best thing about having a partner for your cabaret performance?
Dava: Caye is a wonderful person. She’s extremely talented and I love learning from other performers. It’s nice to have another person to bounce ideas off of. We’re so excited to show everyone what we’ve been working on.
“I love performing. It’s an enlightening experience to be able to use your body to express a story and have a creative outlet. There’s a rush of adrenaline of being able to portray something on stage in front of a live audience.
