THE RED BALL MOVEMENT SHOW
About the Show
DiANNA DAVID has lived many lives to tell. After leaving a successful, yet passionless, career as a mechanical engineer, a chance encounter with a little red ball changed her life forever. It wasn’t until she quit her job and turned her passions into purpose that she started reinventing her own definitions of success. Thus was born, “The Red Ball Movement”, with the mission question, “What’s YOUR red ball?”
This 45-minute one-woman show fuses her multi-disciplinary talents through characterization, prop manipulation, contact juggling, dance and comedy.
Her passion to educate through entertainment has become a unique avenue for people to experience themselves differently. As a Transformational Entertainer, Inspirational Speaker, Creative Educator, Humanitarian, Freestyle Dancer and Human Being, she travels the world inspiring people of all ages to live a life of PLAY: Passion, Love, Art and Youthfulness.
Her story will inspire you to take a closer look at the world around you and see that everything you have ever wanted is right at your finger tips. You just need to have the balls to reach for it.

Our Splendid Sponsors
CAPPELLERIA BERTACCHI, Gastown Vancouver
What we excel at in Tuscany is the mastery in the field of tanning, which constitutes the basis of the production of leather, wool and felt hats.
Bertacchi fully inherits this ancient tradition and while our artisans are still getting inspiration by the Italian fashion of the forties and fifties, we now create a personal contemporary style that makes the hats we design unique and irreproducible.
Anyone can wear one of those hats for a walk in the city, for an elegant evening or just to stand out amongst the others.
