About


About


Petra Delarocha is a professional entertainer from the Pacific Northwest. She is an elite artist who works in entertainment and event design for corporate and private social functions, luxury hospitality, nightlife, fundraisers, and marketing initiatives. Petra's primary focus as an artist is to generate magic via experiential design. She creates movement and visual art as well as environmental realities in order to cultivate connections with others. She is recognized for her innovative vision, outstanding artistic skill, glittering costume collection, and her relaxed fluidity countered by powerful dynamism during a performance which mimics her collected, yet suddenly energetic personality off stage. Because she is primarily self taught, Petra excels at creating original choreography. Her unique movement style fuses transitional contortion, energetic levity, and super sonic spinning. She is quick to learn and yields polished and creative routines. Petra is based in Portland, OR where she works as a professional aerialist, aerial instructor, entertainer, visual artist, and runs her own performance company: Prismagic.
