MARLO FISKEN JOINS THE CAST OF "CATALYST"
Fresh off her first-place win at Aerial Pole International, Marlo Fisken has become one of the world's most beloved pole dancers. And for good reason. Her high-flying athleticism, extreme flexibility, feline grace, and unapologetic sensuality make her more than just a dancer; she is a phenomenon. A true blend of artist and athlete, Marlo is Vertical Theatre at its best.
A HISTORY OF KMVT
Past Kelly Maglia Vertical Theatre productions have premiered at some of LA’s most legendary venues. “Umbrella: A Pole Play” opened in April 2010 at the Viper Room. Later that December, KMVT took on The Whisky a Go Go, as the closing act in PoleStars. And now, “Catalyst” (presented in conjunction with Jagged Dance Company) will play the El Portal Theatre July 8-9, 2011 – representing KMVT’s leap onto the "legit" theatre stage.
