Best known for the mesmerizing roller skating choreography in Chet Faker's "GOLD", Appelusa is a synesthetic actor, writer, voice-over artist, photographer, mixed media artist, and roller skating professional. Her now famous roller skating skills come from a long family history in the industry.
She most recently produced and directed in the first U.S. Synaesthesia Dance Experience: 4D multisensory show to a sold out venue in Culver City, CA, as part of a six week international exhibition on the neurological trait synaesthesia. This performance was 100% crowdfunded and presented by the International Association of Synaesthetes, Artists, and Scientists.
For her individual skating performance, she custom built LED costumes for the skaters to exemplify the aura's she sees as a synesthete. The skaters skated in darkness, creating shapes that depicts another form of synesthesia for the featured song "Light Up and Go" by Portrait XO.
