We run the gambit of Vaudeville-style theatre, with skits, song and dance, and tongue-in-cheek comedy capped with our strong feminist drive- this is a troupe with heart and soul as well as fabulous/erotic fashion sense.
The best part of being in the Fischer Bodies is spreading the message that any body type can be sexy. Not just good-looking, or ok, or passable…SEXY. Hot. Desirable. Powerful. Fierce. We are a force of nature, every one of us.
And somewhere, closer than you think, we are dancing on a table and blowing glitter in the air. For you and for us.
We are a troupe of community activists, intellectuals, exhibitionists, and people who are interested in being fearless at all times. We have a little something to say, a message to share if you will. Take a look. See a performance. You might be surprised at the show you experience.
Your success is a perfect example of the balance of the elements of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. As I watch the world tilt out of control, I find it a delight to watch you choose to cultivate balance. Here is what I see and appreciate:
Wood: You have revolutionized the role of host with a sense of curiosity that makes you fiercely independent and free to create something new in a pressure filled environment.
Fire: You are endowed with an enchanting personal magnetism, and a gift of expression that gathers us up to experience the sensation, drama and sentiment of dance.
Earth: You promote our connectedness with the entire cast, and provide friendship, sustenance and recognition to each and every dancer.
Metal: You perform with precision extracting order from difficult moments and allowing others to perform with elegant precision—even in defeat. You are true to yourself—articulate, unflappable, receptive, and inspired—providing the show with a structure that holds everyone to a high standard.
Water: You step carefully allowing the dancing to articulate our memories, dreams and aspirations. You step back, not seeking the limelight, and we all come to know what can be—even if we cannot dance.
I vote with all my heart and mind for those who consciously create the action of Wood, the warmth of Fire, the connectedness of Earth, the structure of Metal, and the vision of Water. We cannot help but watch those who do.
With gratitude . . .
