Our Artist Spotlight blogs are a weekly feature where we focus on one of our performers, giving you the chance to find out more about the people behind the performances, and offering an insight into the world of entertainment.
Sue Harbottle got his career started as a hip-hop dancer, going to as many dance events as he could and taking part in several competitions as well. He easily moved on to doing music videos and live events as a specialist break-dancer and, being passionate about magic since an early stage, he also started adding magic visuals to his performance.
He got into b-boying(break dancing) by training on the streets with other dancers and learned magic by reading books from the library, from that he then started practising sleight of hand and manipulation.
He recently joined us in performing at the Ents Forum Showcaseand Awards, and that was an experience he really enjoyed. Nevertheless, his best ever experience working as a performer, was with a show called ‘Afrika Afrika’. The show had over 100 artists, all from different backgrounds with a variety of skills, and the atmosphere on stage was always electric.
On the other hand, his worst experience as a performer was when he tried to do a back-flip on stage during a routine and… let’s just say his landing wasn’t so perfect!
In the future he would like to continue with his stage act extending it into a 60 minute theatre production.
We wish you the best of luck and inspiration on making that dream come true, will be watching!!
