Feeding The Fish
Feeding the Fish have been performing their unique brand of highly visual juggling shows for more than 15 years, wowing audiences in over 40 countries.
Directed by Alix Wilding and Simon Mylius, the company is uniquely positioned to innovate and create – besides their expertise in juggling, the combination of Alix’s background in choreography and Simon’s mastery of electronics and programming means that they can develop custom built hardware and use it to create high impact stage shows.
Established in 1996 by Simon Mylius, Howie Bailey and Chris Sly, Feeding the Fish initially produced an innovative glow-show using electrically illuminated balls. The next show ‘Luminescence’ was created in 2000 by Alix, Simon and Howie using the first sequenced programmable juggling equipment (developed in collaboration with Aerotech and with support from BJC2K).
Feeding the Fish invented Pixel-Poi® in 2006, which for the first time allowed custom logos to be incorporated in the show. Laser-Light-Wands were also developed at this time to produce ultra-bright beams above the audience in sync with the soundtrack.
Since their inception Feeding the Fish have gone on to provide specialised choreographed light performances for countless high-profile events including product launches, galas, sporting events, variety shows, festivals and awards ceremonies.
Currently consisting of 16 professional dancers, poi spinners and jugglers, Feeding the Fish have established themselves as one of the top international speciality acts – a fusion of music, light, colour and dance – which has to be seen to be believed
