The possibilleties to find adventures are endless. Some happen in your living room or workplace, or just in our heads. But sometimes you have to travel thousands of miles with ships and planes through stop-overs , lay-overs, hotels & motels use car rentals, busses or even walk or crawl to reach the destination of your next adventure. These ones are by far my favourites…
I was invited to Australia for the month of February getting away from the ugly English winter. But this was just a fancy side effect. The real reason i flew over was of course performing at the Fringe Festivals in Perth and Adelaide. Danger Cabaret Production opened the second instalment of their 2015 hit sensation show ‘El Bizarro‘ and booked me as their headline act. Honoured, exited and little scared i made my way into this totally unknown territory and what i found has truly changed my life & career forever. The producers where super professional and lovely on a quite personal level, the cast of the show was outstanding and the audiences welcomed and appreciated me with applause, compliments and lovely messages after every show. I have honestly never felt so appreciated before. We really celebrated our success together and killed it in every single night.
Making people happy (including myself) has always been the main reason why i started performing. To share the joy with many is a high and to give others a wonderful experience is just beautiful. But to look into somebody’s glowing eyes who tells you that they have never seen anything like your show before and they will never forget it is very very moving. When i created my fire show i wanted to do it differently to what’s already out there. Not to be better then others but to do something new and wild. Australia’s audience made me understand that i succeeded with this mission. And for the first time i look back satisfied. I would not want to change a thing. This is total news to me as i usually always see unleast 1 thing that needs improvement.

I have collected pictures and impressions out of this time and mixed them up with some of the lovely things that have been written and said. Of course i also included the other performers and shows who invited me to perform along the way.
One of them was Hot Brown Honey. An all coloured cast of amazing women (produced by Briefs Factory) who have performed a run of sold out shows in Adelaide. To be invited to join them at their Block Party after show event was a great honour and it even allowed me to get to know them personally a little. I have deep respect seeing a show so well put together in high quality and still carrying a strong political message. These women have truly rocked my world and i hope they will be seen in Europe soon.
Talking about working with the best – I was a special guest at Space Cowboy’s Wonderland Sideshow at the Adelaide Fringe in The Garden of Unearthly Delights . For 11 shows i performed alongside The Lizard Man , Flavella L’Amour , Donny Vomit, and Pain Proof Zoe L’Amore.
I participated for the first time at World Sword Swallowers Day…
and was part of Elena Gabriele’s DIRRTY Cabaret, Marcel Lucont‘s Cabaret Fantastique in Perth & The Best of Fringe Variety show, Adelaide.
What the Press said:
“Ending the night in an inferno of glory was German performance artist Missa Blue. I can honestly say I’ve never seen a fire show like this before – there was literally fire all over the stage! She used various impressive props to pull off amazing pyrotechnic stunts, breathed fire like it was air and tied it all together a fierce personality and dazzling costume, and it made for one hell of a finale.” The Perth Projet
“An amazing pyrotechnic display by German Performance artist and suspected fire mage Missa Blue, that worked well in the high ceiling of the big top.” Rotunda Media Perth
“Fire-breathing she-devil MisSa Blue closed the show with an erotic display of heat and sequins that erupted in applause and whistles.” TREV
