NC Merfest 2014 - Mermaids, Fire, Fashion, Circus and So Much LOVE

January 9, 2014


I just got back in town from the first annual NC Merfest in Cary, North Carolina.

How do I describe this experience in words?  I can do my best to describe the magic, share the art, and reminisce about the sheer, unadulterated joy, but somehow words just aren't enough.

NC Merfest was created b…

The Calm Before the Storm

March 29, 2013

We made it home from Japan, mostly in one piece, and I have been sleeping for about two weeks straight.  It's been wonderful.

I feel like this down time has really restored me on a deep level.  I am so grateful to all the folks at Fire Pixie Entertainment who supported the business during our Huis…

Fire Pixie in New Zealand

April 13, 2012

I'm in New Zealand!  So far it's been awesome.

We had a mostly uneventful flight in spite of some Southwest screwups (which the subsequently fixed with no harm done).  I discovered that Ambien on the plane is just about the best thing EVAR and I'm never flying a long long way without it, ever again.…

A week or so ago my aerial partner Miriam ordered and received a brand-new free standing aerial rig from Trapezerigging.com.  We found a day that wasn't too rainy and headed over to her place to unpack it and assemble it.  SO MUCH FUN

It's like a giant swing set!  A *giant* swing set!

Las Amigas del Fuego - New Tissu Routine

March 20, 2012

I love doing aerial tissu.  I love it when I've been doing regularly for a good long while and I'm feeling strong, and most especially I love it when I'm working on a new choreographed piece.  Regular practice is fun, but working towards a goal is just SO much more satisfying.

Right now I am choreo…

July 6, 2011

Last Tuesday, June 28, Fire Pixie co-produced and performed in Viva Variete.  This was a collaboration with San Jose State University, and the biggest show I've ever produced (or co-produced, I can't say I did all that much). It was at the San Jose Repertory Theater, y'know, the Big Blue Cube theate…

Tissu at the lake

July 15, 2009

I've been up at the lake the last couple of days and it's been lovely. We strung the tissu between two trees and did lots of photographing.. it's a lovely place to hang out. I haven't been motivated to actually practice any choreography, which is becoming a more pressing problem as faerieworlds is i…
