My performances range from Daytime Props, to LeD or Fire, Juggling and Poi, options for other props as well.
I am energetic and always full of new ways to arrange and perform my art! I can do a range of types of performances for either outdoor or indoor performance, and I have a lot of performer friends to add more to the act if it is desired!
Price Range: $120.00 - $500.00
Gig Length: 60 - 180 minutes
What to Expect
I have a progressive mix of high and low energy transitioning through music with precise timing and coordination. Fire poi has a high danger aspect, though it is fully controlled it is always close to the performer and sometimes touching the performer creating extra excitement, while the patterns mesmerize and elude your eyes!
I am a self taught fire and LeD performance artist! Started in Alberta in 2010, and have performed around BC, AB, and in the U.S.
My main practice is an Art called Poi, originating in New Zealand. I combine traditional and modern poi techniques, with juggling creating a unique arrangement of patterns that are elusive to what I am doing. I practice other props, and flow arts as well as teach lessons, and workshops for basic up to advanced in most props! I have a passion to share art through both sharing and performing, and would love to get to network more now that I am in Kelowna, and get to share my art somewhere new!
Additional Booking Notes
Sound can be based if there is a DJ, or I can provide music via iPod, and would need aux availability to a sound system. I can Also provide a small sound system for the duration of my performances!
I bring my own fire extinguisher, and a towel to soak in water as a fire blanket for putting my props out.
Staging should not be really dry wood, though some wood surfaces are not too bad to work with. Lighting generally should be low, but does not have to be pitch black.
Should be at least 15ft x 15ft area roughly for the performance area, and a safe distance from that for spectators.
I have a huge range of music, able to select for different types of events, also comfortable performing to music already set up for the event.
I really enjoy performing to live music as well!
