Sharon from Canada
Vancouver, British Columbia
To truly capture the spirit of Canada for Canada 150 we needed to recruit Canada’s most patriotic, politically correct, and passive aggressive. We needed Sharon from Canada!
With a bright red jump suit, oversized glasses, and a smile that stretches ear to ear, Sharon from Canada proves that hockey players aren’t the only ones who can score a hat trick and captivate an audience!
Tianna the Traveller
She’s travelled the world collecting unusual stunts and stories, preparing a routine that will thrill and inspire you! Tina the Traveller is cracking whips and cracking wise.
With a little help from her favorite travel companions: and nice sturdy set of chains and ratchet straps, Tianna’s act has reminded audiences around the world that NOTHING is impossible.
The Checkerboard Guy
Vancouver, British Columbia
In need of a good laugh? The Checkerboard Guy is a performer you don’t want to miss. One part inspired insanity, one part interactive game, one part skillful demonstration, and 100 percent infectious fun. This comedy-juggling superhero may sling clubs and axes, but his superpowers are used only for good; getting you to laugh.
Guinness World Record holder, Mighty Mike is the funniest strong man you have yet to lay eyes on! Sledgehammers and bowling balls are child’s play to this global strength phenomenon. Witness him bend horse shoes, drive nails through boards with his hands, and tear a pack of playing cards in half. Witness the man that is Mighty Mike and his Circus Strongman Act!
These hilarious and engaging artists will be walking and performing all over the festival site.
Doris the Tyrannosaurus (Nikolai Smith)
A real live dinosaur will be prowling the streets of Centrefest. But don’t worry, she’s kept under control by one of Canada’s Finest. Come closer and say hi. Doris LOVES children, especially when she’s hungry! (Because they bring her treats of course).
The FlowBot. (Michael Ortiz)
Ultimate Intergalactic Robot Ninja! Always battling invisible demons and aliens, keeping the streets and citizens of Red Deer safe, as he travels through time, space, and Ross Street. Looks good doin’ it too!
Not satisfied with walking and chewing gum at the same time, Jason Kodie has learned to play piano while riding a bike. Jason Kodie is an active musician in the charming northern Canadian capital city of Edmonton Alberta, and has been doing so for the past 20 years.
He performs routinely and vigorously with a cast of characters and bands, (Allez Ouest, Captain Tractor, Le Fuzz), and an extensive list of former bands who have either burned out or were forced into early retirement. Among the many chapeaux that he wears, he is a sought after accordionist, musical director, and soundscape designer.
