We are interested in performers who are 35 and older.

Innately, she is charged with wisdom. Nature of which is so pure & quiet. Connected to the whispers of nature, she transcends human wants & desire, since she knows how false those are. A temporary substitute, yet nothing else. Literally, she speaks & listens to ghost of past & present. Never they leave, one only has to stop & listen to their whispers.

A devil in a sheep's cloth. Every step & attempt of his is measured for self egotistic fulfillment. A desire to have what he doesn't. Not even knowing how it to be comprehended afterwards, yet such desire is stronger then logic. He confronts her in her believes. For him it is all mundane. He doesn't believe in magic, since what possibly can it / will it bring to him & others like him. Aka majority. He is not in touch with spirits, nor does he believe in them. His lies are aimed to open himself to them & rob them of their power. He will not reveal his true face, but she is witter, smarter & quicker. Once she glimpses into his true face, inevitably, he is left without a choice but to vanish such knowledge out of her memory.
