The Five Faces of Fulli is the name of Ushiku Crisafulli’s first poetry collection and accompanying solo show performed at 3 Minute Theatre on 31st October 2012 whereby he performed as five different alter egos or “faces” that represented different parts of himself.
A time travelling steampunk from the 51st Century. Sir Benjamin fuses Victorian whimsy with science-fiction panache. As comfortable with absinthe as he is musing philosophy and questioning the nature of our existence he can just as easily be found live modelling in an art gallery as he is attending a cosplay rave.
With the suave and swagger of a wrestling heel El Poetico eviscerates his opponents in such a way that he is both bard and brawler. The consummate showman he exudes the presence of a main event star.
Hailing from the Deep South… of Italy, he’s not your average cowboy. He likes wine, women, and men in equal measure. This brilliant bisexual cowboy began as an avant garde theatre performance and has since moved into the realms of standup comedy and musicianship.
Perhaps Ushiku’s most known “Face of Fulli” the Indigo Angel began as a conduit for him to process the darker and more difficult of his lived experiences. His signature piece “Battle of Demon’s Run” was initially commissioned as part of David Hoyle’s Northern Lights in October 2011 when David asked Ushiku to write a poem about mental health. The piece recounts some of the most challenging life experiences of Ushiku’s life up until that point. While Ushiku has since learned to face the darkness himself the Indigo Angel remains arguably one of his most popular “Faces of Fulli”.
