Intimate Profile of 56-Year-Old Performance Artist and Contorionist Amy Harlib

56-year-old New York City performance artist Amy Harlib has been wowing crowds for decades. Under the stage name The Amazing Amy, she does a routine which is part dance, part yoga, part comedy and part contortion acts. Despite torn rotator cuffs in both shoulders, a disintegrated disk in her spine, a total left hip replacement and bursitis in her left knee, she still hits the stage as much as possible.

Using humor and a love of fantasy, “The Amazing Amy” Harlib connects with audiences through performing strenuous yoga-based contortion acts in New York City.
