EIGHTEEN-INCH PACKING CASE HOLDS CONTORTIONIST (Jan, 1929)
EIGHTEEN-INCH PACKING CASE HOLDS CONTORTIONIST
CAN YOU wedge yourself into a packing case only a foot and a half square? The feat sounds impossible, but it is only an incident in the day’s work for a Berlin contortionist. The photograph shows him tied into a knot inside his narrow quarters, with his assistant looking on. Just how comfortable his position may be, is open to question, but it is at least certain that there is very little space inside the box that is not occupied by the actor. According to the contortionist, there’s nothing to the feat. He’s the ideal type of renter for a kitchenette apartment.
