Performer Biographies:

Greg and Kristi have performed for more than 20 years. Each of these performers has a considerable solo career as well as their performance work together. In the past decade they have created seven science-based shows for the Ontario Science Centre, as well as touring North America extensively with their school show Fizzical Fizzicks and their other shows, Cake and I Scream! and Spin Cycle.

Kristi Heath has been a professional performer since the age of eighteen, beginning her career with the Second City comedy revue company. Once she figured out how to combine her background in comedy and theatre with goofy circus tricks, she became a very happy person. She has been performing her own unique style of physical comedy around the world ever since, including engagements with Cirque du Soleil and performances in Japan, Korea, Europe, New Zealand, Singapore and coast to coast in Canada and the US.

Greg Tarlin's remarkable skills earned him the title of Canadian juggling champion at the age of 20 and since then he has performed in Japan, Korea, at the North Pole for Canada's military, coast to coast in Canada, the USA and aboard cruise ships. His vast repertoire of skills includes 7 ball and 5 club juggling, ball spinning, unicycling, stilt walking, rola bola, yo-yo and plate spinning!

"This was a very engaging, age appropriate and educational show for our students.  They were extremely interested in the topic and very entertained by the ‘fun’ nature of the show.  I would highly recommend this show for any elementary school."
