GNOR



Henna Making, Flint Steel Fire Lighting

Gnor only comes to SpunOut to see Jed take his shirt off. She's been coming to SpunOut forever and can generally be found either teaching beginners with the patience of a saint, or cooking up some mischief in the kitchen with the rest of the witchie coven.

Don't miss her workshop on flint and steel fire lighting... you'll never need a match or lighter again!


HANA PRIEST



SpunOut Festival Director, Site Manager, Flaming Cat Herder

Hana is the one that keeps this festival ticking over year after year. What started as a weekend away with friends, has grown to be the longest running fire arts festival in the world... 17 years and she still can't seem to let it go!

Hana is normally supervised by her SpunOut Co-director Jed, because someone needs to be there to tell her when to stop talking.

Make sure she gets her wine and shirtless men for a smooth weekend of learning and fun time shenanigans.

JJ SWAN (Galaxy Jaxsyn)



Movement, Twerking

With more energy than most 6 year olds and an air of confidence to rival Narcissus himself, it's only natural for JJ to make her debut as a workshop teacher this year. After just a year swanning around bars and clubs in very little, she's learnt quite a lot, and is ready to teach you what she knows!

JED FOWLER (Mr Jedly)

KYMMI BROWNE



Makeup, Guyliner, Performance Makeup

"My first SpunOut was in 2007 and I fell in love with everything to do with fire and have been coming back nearly every year since. In 2010 I completed my Diploma in Specialist Make-Up Services and also started performing. Make-up and photography are my passion and I've also competed in a few body painting competitions.

This year will be my first year teaching at SpunOut. I've decided to create some Performance Makeup workshops and to give you some of my tips on making your make-up stay put, as well as how to come up with a unique make-up design. There will also be make-up for the boys with "Guyliner 101" and I'll be selling some brush sets so you can create your own looks at home."

LARA JOHNSON



Burlesque Pastie Making, Pole Dance

Lara has been in the world of the arts her whole life, even being on the stage with her father (an international speaker) as a baby. Lara started fire spinning at the age of 12 at local music gigs and events, which then lead her into the world of circus where she now spends most of her time.

LEIGHTON BEANLAND

LOU MYERS

Fan Choreography

Fire artist, photographer, teacher, outback adventurer... Lou is a woman of many talents. She also has the best cat ever with an Insta account well worth following.

MATHEW DAVIES



Partner Poi

Mat is either setting things on fire or balancing a woman above his head... these days it's often both at the same! With a love of partner acro, staff spinning, poi and fire eating, Mat's understated charm and talent is always a great addition to SpunOut festivities.

ROB (Slack Rob)
South Australia



Slack Lining, Staff, Rope Dart

Rob is a man with a curious distrust of bridges. To cope with his affliction, he has taught himself to walk rather well on thin bits of strapping over canyons and other such places that normally require bridges. He has been doing this for so long he’s become rather good at it. He calls it “Slack Lining” to attempt to legitimise it as a real activity.

If you too have an irrational distrust in modern bridge engineering and like to get from A to B in an unnecessarily complicated way, then Rob is here to teach you how it’s done. (Apparently, he does rope dart and staff too… but we suspect this is just to get into the flow arts community where his “Slack Lining” is met with appreciation rather than the contempt it deserves.)

SARAH FAE



Acro Yoga, Bellydance, Partner Acrobatics

Sarah has a life-long passion for all things involving movement, balance, fun, and flow - from figure ice skating, to dancing, martial arts, pilates, yoga, rock climbing, and circus arts. Her latest obsession of 6 years running is partner acrobatics! Her passion for movement is only matched by her passion for sharing this joy with others.

SETH COX

Drawn into Murdoch Uni’s Circus Club by the promise of lighting things on fire and not getting yelled at, Seth joins the instructor roster to help beginners enjoy their introduction to SpunOut as much as he did last year.

THOMAS ROBINSON
(Northern Territory)



Short String Leviwand, Long String Leviwand

Thom is the handsome, mustached, muse of Kacie at Flowpyre. She forces him to eat fire endlessly for her photographic pleasure. When Thom isn’t eating fire, he’s busy being a short- and long-string leviwand master with a penchant for dragon staff. He does other stuff too, but no one really knows what it is… something about helicopters and videography. He's so talented we can't keep up.

TIM RICE
