FIRE LIVENS THE OCCASION
& PHOENIX SEDUCES THE FIRE.
Ms Phoenix has trained professionally with fire since 2005, which has allowed her to travel internationally with different circus troupes. She came onto the scene with her spectacular fire breathing, which takes on inspired shapes and has reached well over sizes of 20 feet! Since her fiery conception she has been known for her fierceness and fearlessness and for mastering a variety of techniques and wild antics. She wears many different hats in the circus arts including fire eating and fire breathing along with an arsenal prop and weapon list of: bo staff/staves, hulahoops, fans, whips, sword, throwing knives, archery, and poi (all of which she has fire &/or LED versions of). Phoenix also specialises in stilting, aerial silks, aerial lyra, and crowd pleasing participation. Phoenix has been featured in television, movies, and commercials both Nationally and World Wide. You have probably already seen her eat fire in the 2009-12 opening montage to Saturday Night Live. She has worked with Cirque du Soleil and many NYC based performance troupes including Lady Circus and Modern Gypsies. She also was the resident performer and the lead fire coordinator for many of the infamous NYC Underground parties such as the Danger, Gratitude, and W & B Presents to name a few, as well as soul-creator of the renegade fire posse Free Ignition (fka Got FIre?).
Ms Phoenix teaches classes, groups and privates, to both children and adults. Her classes available to both children and adults alike are fireless tool manipulation and other circus arts, and include, but are not limited too, hula hoop(s), poi, staff (staves), ribbon(s), flags, palms, fans, lyra, trapeze, silks, stilting, and much more. She also teaches (18+ only) tool manipulation on fire. Phoenix also custom makes props and fire gear based on individual specifications with additional tool making and fire safety courses also available. Phoenix has been involved in two world records including being the only female on the planet to catch a knife thrown on a full turn by professional knife thrower The Great Throwdini. She performs for an array of clientale including cooperate events, bars , clubs, children's and teen's parties, weddings, fundraisers, charity events, video & photography shoots, and all those EPIC underground warehouse parties that are the glitter and grind of NYC Night Life. Phoenix is the inventor and only performer in the world to fire kiss the audience giving an unique glimpse into her world as a fire seductress. Phoenix also trains rigoursly with different weapons and props. Her whip routine will scare and delight you and to balance out the fierceness with joy she teaches hulahooping weekly with Groove Hoops.
Fire Safety is Phoenix's priority (all safety third jokes aside) and happily we can report a flawless record of safety including for all participants, audience members, and venues, etc. Phoenix has performer's insurance anyway. Even though Ms Phoenix has risked her own personal safety and done astounding stunts like dance in no protective gear inside a burning temple - barefoot, shoot huge fire balls while spinning in circles, eat fire while swinging on trapeze, and set ablaze the tongues of hundreds of unsuspecting audience members, to name a few, she has managed to come out of it all unscathed and has never burnt another. We thank the Gods & Goddesses of fire for this and respectfully follow their rules and wisdom when harnessing the mystery of the flame.
