About Fred Garbo & Daielma Santos

Fred Garbo got paid for doing a card trick in 1974, and has been a professional performer ever since. On Sesame Street, he was the acrobat inside Barkley the Dog. On Broadway, he was the chief juggler in the musical Barnum. He toured Europe, Hong Kong and Australia with the Obie Award-winning Foolsfire, with Bob Berky and Michael Moschen. Whether tumbling for the New York City Opera at Lincoln Center or dancing with MOMIX in Brazil, Fred brings a gymnast's timing and an actor's presence to his Inflatable Theater Co. He even was featured on David Letterman's Late Night. Fred Garbo continues to astound and tickle audiences with his pop-action inflatables and hilarious stage presence. For more than two decades he has been inventing inflatables with artist/builder: George York. Fred has trained and performed with the Master of Illusion: Tony Montanaro. (Fred also trains in “snowboarding “ every chance he gets.)

Daielma Santos Daielma Santos was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Her training includes studies at the Royal Academy of Dance of London, Michigan University, and with director Tony Montanaro. In Brazil, Daielma danced with Studio de Dancas and was principal ballerina with the Opera Paulista II dance company. Her performances span the Americas and Europe, both as choreographer and performer. From The Nutcracker to The Inflatable Living Project, Daielma's choreography combines world-class artistry and technical brilliance with theatrical humor. Daielma became a US citizen in July of 2000. Daielma now lives with her husband and daughter in Charlotte, NC.
