There are some who find their niche in the vast world of art and creating and run with it. Far. They take the prosaic, something there, we all know, heard about, or even used, and they turn it into art or performance, a spectacle that draws people in. This is what Marawa did and does. A hula-hooping goddess, she wows the world with shows, so incredible, they incorporate hula-hoops, color, and a lot of personality. In addition to her shows, Marawa conducts worldwide hula-hoop workshops enjoyed by young and old. A holder of two world records, performer on stages around the world, Marawa does what she loves and  brings it to the world. Simple as that.

In this interview, she tells us about how she started hula-hooping, what keeps her inspired, and of course, what it means to live unchained.

What is your favorite thing about making art/hula-hooping?

It’s fun, keeps you fit and you can do it almost anywhere.

Happiness.

I love hearing stories from people who say they took up hooping after seeing me perform and that it inspired them to become active again.
