Iman High Kick

My favorite act of the evening was the incredibly talented Iman Lizarazu, a French Basque artist whose hair is more charismatic than most people’s whole personalities. Lizarazu combines pantomime, juggling, dance ( and a gorgeously radiant smile) into a silent yet utterly captivation performance that sparkles with a graceful intelligence
- European Weekly

Original, invigorating as well as tender and genuine, Iman's solo performances bring with her the fine art of physical comedy in addition to topnotch juggling skills. She is an accomplished mime and physical comedian. Her performance is filled with a wide range of comic disciplines from circus arts to commedia dell'arte.
“Outstanding! We love Iman.”
Original!

Santa Cruz resident Iman Lizarazu, whose life reads like a character from a fanciful French fable. She is a photographer, a painter, a conceptual artist and a vaudeville performer. She’s even a singer, though she admits she can’t sing very well, but does it anyway.
But that’s not even the interesting part.

She was born and reared in the Basque region between France and Spain in a family of winemakers, but also lived in Moscow as a teen, as her father was artistic director of the Bolshoi Ballet. She attended art school in Dresden and Berlin, studied mime with Marcel Marceau in Paris and — you gotta be kidding me — even earned a doctorate in astrophysics from the Max Planck Institute in Munich.

She speaks English, French, Russian, German and her native tongue, Euskara. She studies circus arts, flamenco and dance. She’s performed all over the world from festivals to refugee camps. And she’s performing on Saturday in the European-style varieté show called "Three of a Kind" with clown/comedian Hacki and bubbleman Tom Noddy.

Iman Lizarazu, artista poliedrikoa
Guztiok dugu zerbait berezia, eta neurri batean, guztiok gara bakar, are Iman Lizarazu, zeren arau guztien eta definizio guztien gainetik, esan daiteke bera are bakarrago dela. Euskal Herrian sortu eta hazi zen, ardogile zen sendi batean. Baina, aitak Bolshoi Baleta zuzentzen zuen Moskun, eta han ere hazi zen neska. Berlinen ere bizi izan zen arte-ikasle garaian, eta Parisen mimo ikasten ibili zen Marcel Marceau handi eta mitikoarekin, eta Munichen zer lortuko eta, Municheko Max Planck Institutuan Astrofisika Doktore egitea. Wallace Bain kazetariaren eskutik emakume ikusgarri honen berri izango dugu; Santa Cruz Sentinel egunkaritik hartu eta laburtu dugu ondoren doakizuena
