MisSa Blue: Don’t swallow your fear - Use it!
MisSa Blue is a well known variety performer who has gained international recognition through her highly skilled sword swallowing shows and for being one of the very few woman in the world who are still actively practising this ancient art form. After touring the world for almost a decade and headlining shows of all genre she has recently signed a leading role with the German Variety Company GOP.
It’s been quite a journey to become the successful performer she is today and in her talk MisSa will share her personal story on how overcoming mental illness triggered by a difficult childhood gave her finally the confidence to pursue her dreams.
In 2016 she survived a life threatening accident on stage. This has pushed her to become an activist for Performers of Colour in international show business. MisSa has since been called a role model for her fight against racism and for more visibility of black female performers in the industry.
