DiVine Performers take over L'auberge

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

L'auberge's top employees of the year were treated to an over the top show Monday night. DiVine performers dressed as living vines stretched their way through the casino wrapping themselves around unknowing employees.

"We love taking them by surprise. It's so much fun," said Angel Gwartney Noble.

Noble is a Westlake native and has been performing with DiVine for ten years. She and Yuti Williams were two of the original DiVine girls.

"We love what we do. We love to perform and I think it shows because we have a passion for it," said Williams.

Both women have a background in dance and started performing at Disney World with DiVine. During their time with the company they've traveled the world.

"We have been all over the U.S., Canada, France," said Williams. "It's amazing because we are welcomed wherever we go."

They carefully walk on 3 1/2 foot stilts with their bodies covered in vines and leaves. They say even with the makeup, costume and moves it took a while to get completely comfortable with their character.

"It took about six months before I was totally able to work my role and be graceful. You have to really concentrate to get that look on your face and move around. But once you get it - it comes easy," explained Williams.

"I hate when we scare children. But I love when we are able to surprise people. It's unlike any other performance because we are right in the middle of our audience and can hear exactly what they are saying so it is instant gratification," said Noble.

Both women have full time jobs but do the DiVine performances on the side.

"We love the fact that we are able to do this and get paid for it and travel. It's something not a lot of people get to do and we are very fortunate," said Noble.
