Naga are seen in many different Asian countries, most notably those with Hindu, Jainism or Buddhist heritage. They are deity-esque creatures that take several different forms, though they are always some combination of snake (usually king cobra)/human. This particular character is inspired by the pre-Hispanic Fillipino concept of a naga, referred to as a “Marindaga,” which are seen as a mermaid-like creature with the bottom half of an eel or water snake.
With a brilliant red, orange and cream coloured body, fangs and pearls, the Naga character is versatile as either a land or water based performer. Able to be booked for audiences of any age, the Naga is a living, moving piece of art that will enhance any event.
The Naga, has performed at such events as The Festival of Legends in North Carolina and Conaplooza in Tennessee. The Naga is primarily a storytelling performance, characterized by long sibilant hisses, G-PG13 rated jokes depending on the audience age, snake themed twists on classic fairy tales (such as Little Red Riding Snake), and folk songs.
The Naga character debuted in 2016 at The Festival of Legends in North Carolina. It is a versatile character that is equally comfortable in water or on land. For booking information, please use the contact form below!
