I am so honored to be part of the event’s ‘Cool’ factor!” ~ Ann Marshall Bailey ~ Live Event Painting

The Off Centered Project was created in 2012 by Kristina Guede and Tony Schott, two performing artists, in search of a healthy, professional environment to creatively express their visons. With lifelong backgrounds in classical ballet and competitive gymnastics, this duo collaborated their forces to form a company where artists could flourish and live out their dreams.
In 2019, The Voilà Foundation has happily asked The Off Centered Project to design performances in the spirit of Venice!
Daniela Caldwell started her training very young in competitive rhythmic gymnastics. Her love of Cirque Arts led to training in ballet, contemporary dance, contortion, hand balancing, aerial silks, lyra, straps and sling. She has been performing throughout Atlanta and the Southeast for the last few years for private events, charities, shows and festivals. Her most popular act (and unique act) involves contortion/handbalancing and ball manipulation.
