The makeup of Mystere

Even without her colorful costume, Chacon gets identified around town as a Cirque performer. “Because of my size [4-foot-9],” she explains. And that’s not all she and her character have in common. “The only time the character stops moving is when something big is happening onstage, and the only time I stop moving is when I sleep … if I sleep.”
