Carisa Hendrix

Carisa Hendrix's performances are a mix of magic, circus sideshow, illusion and spectacle. From 2007 to 2009 she attended the Alberta College of Art and Design (ACAD) focusing on performance art and design studies. Hendrix ais the organizer of Light and Motion, the first juggling and prop manipulation festival in Alberta. The festival promoted fitness, skill building, innovation and community. The participants ranged from novice hobbyists to experienced entertainer, and the classes covered a wide range of skills. Light and Motion became a major hub for prop manipulations in western Canada and is now going into it's 4th year.

As a result of Light and Motion and the various tours, Hendrix became known for her skill and innovation in the art of fire eating. As a response to demands she'd been receiving from the online and locally entertainment communities, she produced North America's first Fire Eating DVD. Released in January 2010, How to Eat Fire is now available in 32 countries and online for fire fanatics everywhere and has received rave reviews from students and industry experts alike. In addition to the DVD, Carisa created the Fire Bug Blog and Fire Bug Podcast , an ever growing online resources of fire art related topics such as fire safety, burn treatment, international fire arts events, fuel information, show creation and more.
