Specialty: Fusion of Spoken Word & Visual Art
Christopher Agostino is both a visual and performing artist. He tells stories through painted faces in his signature StoryFaces performances. He and his work have appeared on the NBC Today Show, the CBS Early Show and the cover of Abercrombie & Fitch Quarterly, makeup shows for Kryolan Professional Makeup, and for the opening of the 2013 National Storytelling Conference. His 35 years on stage began as a teenage apprentice to a professional theatre company, performing Shakespeare in parks and arts-in-education programs in schools. His teachers include physical theatre luminaries such as John Towsen and Sigfrido Aguilar, and his acquired skills include physical comedy, clowning, writing and creating original theatre, and storytelling. His professional art career began as a graphic artist, working with his father in a silk screen studio. In addition to his face and body painting, he creates masks, props, paintings and hand-painted costumes for our shows, makes ceramic sculptures and pottery (under the tutelage of John Fink), and enjoys tending his garden.
