New Online Circus Hub in Calgary

Posted on by Carisa Hendrix in Articles for Performers Leave a comment

Circus arts in Calgary have really grown in the last few years. A few days ago I put up this hub website to bring some of the lesser known local treasures into the light.

It’s a little thing but I hope it will help illustrate now much there is for the circus community in Calgary.

This hoop dance video has inspired me time and time again and I wanted to share it with you guys. Mat Plendl is a brilliant performer and watching videos like this drives me to work harder on my own performances and also reminds me to be humble because there are still miles for me to grow. Thx Mat


Moments of Contemplation: Information is not Knowledge

Posted on by Carisa Hendrix in Blogs & Vlogs Leave a comment

This morning I stayed up to watch the sunrise. As I stood in the doorway with a fresh cup of coffee in hand, taking in the warm glow and the stillness, I was suddenly stuck by the sight of something unexpected.

I watched as a car drove up the street and stopped in the middle of the road a few houses down. A man stepped out of the vehicle and tossed a rolled newspaper onto the front steps of a house across the street, which was actually quite an impressive feat since the door was a good twenty feet away. Then the man then got back into his car and drove away out of sight.

This seemingly unremarkable moment may have gone unnoticed except that it had roused a curious thought in my mind “wow, newspapers are really dead”. Nothing spelled it out more than realizing paper routes must now be done by vehicle since only one house in three blocks was interested. I used to have a paper route myself and even the worst block would have four to five subscribers.

Our digital age and our digital tastes are changing so many aspects of our everyday lives, even as I write this I’m sitting on the step typing away at my laptop. I hope we take moments to ask questions about the impact of these changes.

Is it better to be served up the news as filtered by one media entity like a newspaper or to have access to all the opinions and information on the Web? I often wonder if the vast abundance of data allows us to pick and choose what we like and create any narrative that suits us.

As Albert Einstein put it “Information is not knowledge.”
