Christiaan Oranje: By Invitation Only Oct 23

Christiaan Oranje is premiering his new show By Invitation Only on October 23 at the Duplex, a well known cabaret bar.

Christiaan Oranje is a Dutch performer, currently living and working in NYC. He has been a street performer in Europe for 15 years, and performed at Europe’s TOP theater festivals. He has managed his own theater in Amsterdam, offered his multi-personality solo show at parties and corporate events, and worked as a coach for performers and corporate speakers.

Oranje’s teachers, and biggest influences, are/have been: Carol Fox Prescott, Didier Danthois, Jango Edwards, Nancy Gabor, Philippe Gaullier, Rene Kres, Johnny Melville, Slava Polonin, The Streets and … Life.

The show is inspired by musical comedian Victor Borge. The show features Christiaan’s own compositions on the piano as he dramatizes the story of his life, including both successes and misfortunes. The show is directed by Mark Lonergan of Parallel Exit Theatre Company.

A critic wrote of Oranje’s previous show: “… Christiaan is an amazingly talented performer and it really is a pleasure to watch him. His control over his body is breathtaking (I would suspect clown or mime training). He appears to grow and shrink before our very eyes, and every move of his hands is as controlled and meticulous as a magician’s.”
