Media Advisory: Contortionist-A Subway First!

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - April 6, 2006) - As part of the TTC's Pizzazz campaign, contortionist Aiden Orange will wrap himself into knots and even fit his body through a tiny regulation squash racket on Friday, April 7th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on the Yonge-University-Spadina subway. Orange has performed all over the world, and has even appeared on the David Letterman show.

A chocolate bunny will roam downtown subway stations handing out special treats from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The bunny will be joined by TTC Chair Howard Moscoe at Bloor Station at 1:00 p.m.

A classic mime will also entertain TTC customers from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. on the Dundas streetcar.
