Marian Gehman not only puts on a show but also creates the characters she’s portraying, detailing everything - right down to tone of voice, facial gestures and personalities. She’s a ventriloquist so she does all of it without even moving her lips when her puppet speaks!
Her characters find their way into this world through her creativity and imagination. And she ensures they are entertaining as well! That only happens with a lot of skill and even more practice.
She develops and performs shows that delight. Although the pandemic really caused a disruption in how she connects with her audiences, she figured that out too by thinking about her art in new ways.
On this episode, host Angela de Burger chats with Marian about how she got involved in this form of creative expression, how she brings a new character to life, why audiences connect so strongly with her characters, and how she got creative in order to perform shows in new ways over the past two years.
