Cypris caught the first kiss of fire’s love on April 1, 2006. She and Kara* formed Exuro in October of 2006. They began collaborating with Jacob Felder for adagio balance and partner yoga in 2009. In 2010 Cypris decided to broaden Exuro’s reach and spun her way across the United States, landing in her current home, Seattle, WA .
Her tools of expression are fire poi, fire fans, fire eating, rope dart, stilt walking, LED poi, practice poi, and flags. Cypris has performed at many different venues including: WaMu Theater, The Can-Can, Columbia City Theater, Re-Bar, The Jewel Box Theater, The Morgue, Caliente Resort, Tri-Numeral Festival, The Millennium Center, The Sawtooth Center for fine Art, Amos’s South End, The Wherehouse, and many others.
Also a classically trained chef, Cypris has been a personal chef, restaurateur, food critic, and caterer. Her love of food has inspired a travel bug that has taken her to Iceland, Ireland, France, Italy, Jamaica, British Colombia, and across the US.
