The world is fraught with dangers… bad hairs days, ingrown toe nails, high waisted pants, soy dandies parading as lattes, it’s a sea of obstacles designed to trip you up… but don’t worry; we can aide you on your journey through the wild ride of life.

  • Have you ever wondered what the future has in store for you?
  • Do you even have a future?
  • Does it involve a walrus?
  • Will Khalu the god of overheated curry visit your house… ever?
  • Does someone else have the same mismatched socks as you?
  • Do all Brazilians have Brazilians?

This intergalactic time travelling gypsy has seen it all, and she’s here to share her cosmic ‘wisdom’ with you and your guests. Complete with her devastatingly cute gorilla apprentice Miso, she is fully equipped with a plethora of oracles and divinatory artifacts from distant galaxies, between realms and beyond time to ensure you safe passage. Are you ready to face your future? Or are you ready to create it? Time to find out….

 

Roving entertainment – Highly interactive character Desmerelda is great for meet and greet, at festivals and events, as one on one roving entertainment.

Future booth – For a greater level of guest participation I can set up a future booth with a gorgeous table and zany props. Guests have readings which undoubtedly require their involvement in song, dance, or other silly shenanigans to appease a deity or two. Great for team building too!

MC – Available for all manner of corporate, community and social occasions, Desmerelda and Miso will bring magic and mystery to your event. With an assortment of lighthearted and intriguing segues on offer they can be as interactive or as minimalist as required.

Psychic Party Host – Would you like a party with a difference? With an emphasis on having fun and getting everyone involved, bring your event to life with interactive psychic games that will make you giggle and squirm and maybe even show you skills you didn’t know you had! Great for hen’s nights, birthday parties, corporate team building events, festivals, and psychic fairs.

Ritual – If you want to delve a little deeper we can co-create a beautiful ritual for the celebratory person or event, such as for someone having a birthday or celebrating an anniversary.

Biography;

With a performing and fine arts background spanning more than 30 years, Eccentrix and inSpiral founder Tjoni Johansen has had an eclectic journey through creativity, psychology, education, social enterprise and community, and has collected a wealth of experience, talent and inspiration to draw upon.

As a performer she has come to the forefront of her field in the past 10 years, focusing on Fire performance, African dance, Tribal bellydance and Physical Theatre. She worked as a performer and collaborator with a number of companies including Cirque Mystique, FEET theatre, The Magic Theatre and Fireworks Dance Co. Tjoni has also produced many of her own 1-5 person acts for corporate functions, community festivals and other theatrical events around Australia, as well as producing the sell out event ‘Can Can Cabaret’ in 2009, to showcase local performing and fine arts talent..

Her work as a teacher began as soon as she mastered the art of fire, and she has been teaching and developing workshops for school students, festivals, and the general public, for over ten years. Born out of a genuine desire to share her passion and skill with others, and help students access their own inner teacher and creativity, Tjoni’s workshops are created on a foundation of respect, inclusivity, encouragement and ultimately, joy. The recent development of Creative Bootcamp projects has seen her directing and producting collaborative circus shows of 15-20 students performers in schools, resulting in ecstatic audiences and performers alike.
