ORIGAMI ARTIST AT EVENTS

Not your grade school teacher’s origami! Cirque du Papier is a mind-bending, paper-folding, your-world-ain’t-flat-no-more experience. Meandering event guests discover Folder Fantastique, Michael Roy Baldridge deftly displaying dazzling digital dexterity, morphing single flat squares of paper into 3D creatures by mere folding. No cuts. No tears. No glue. And no table! Without missing a crease, interactive performer, Michael Roy simultaneously (and at the same time!) keeps guests amused with a nonstop stream of offbeat witty repartee and useless (yet strangely fascinating) information, revealing the secrets and history of folding art. Guests marvel as Michael Roy works magic, with amazing manipulations, quick wit, and cool “transformers”.

And his mesmerizing MicRo Gallery displays pretty paper party pet caricatures so cool everyone will just have to have one! To “win” a colorful creation of exquisite artistry, elegantly executed right before their eyes, Michael Roy will engage your guests in carnival games, puzzles, riddles, and other attractions and interactivities. The best part? Your guests are always part of the show and may go home with an oh-so-cool keepsake!

Whether hanging out with guests at his MicRo Gallery of Origami Art or mingling among event guests, Cirque du Papier performer, Michael Roy, Folder Fantastique is appropriate wherever fine and fun close-up entertainment is needed. From high-end events to small parties, the fine art of entertainment for the discerning.

Q Isn’t this all a little strange? What you do that is. I have never seen an origami entertainer before! Never even ever heard of one! How do I know I am getting my money’s worth of entertainment and artistry?

Yes, we are rare. In the USA there is me and perhaps a half a dozen others. In England probably a few more than that and a couple in Europe. To say the least, Origami Entertainers are very rare indeed, just like diamonds with perfect clarity, unusual color, and a well crafted cut. Oh, but I know what you are thinking: “Wasn’t Michael Roy Baldridge born and raised in the hills of Eastern Kentucky, i.e coal country?” OK, perhaps I am closer to a piece of coal than a rare jewel. And I will fold under pressure, but in this case, not a bad thing. Look at it this way: You don’t have to wait several thousand years and pay millions to hire me. I am affordable right now, and adorable . . . OK, at least affordable. And if you are still concerned with getting your money's worth of sparkling entertainment, please ask us for references.
