Lynx is the stagename of a British female magician and fire breather who specialises in erotic and burlesque style shows.

Standard Show


Her traditional show begins with her being produced by her assistants inside an empty upright box, dressed in an evening dress. An audience member is then invited onto stage to take part in an illusion in which Lynx tries, but fails, to cut off their head, despite sawing through it with a jig-saw. A close-up magic segment then follows, involving the production of silks and their disappearance in fire. At the end of the routine, a flash of light momentarily hides Lynx, revealing her in her classic stage costume of a sequinned black bikini.

Lynx then introduces her stage assistant, dressed in a white leotard, for the performance of the Sawing in Thirds. The assistant is placed into a trance, lies down on a long table, and a metal box is placed over her. Lynx drives metal blades down into the box, slicing her assistant into three, and lifts out a section of the box, from which she removes her assistant's costume. The assistant is then restored, the box removed, and the assistant covered with a cloth. At Lynx's command, the assistant levitates into the air, and vanishes in the blink of an eye, the cloth fluttering to the floor.

Another audience member is then invited onto stage, and asked to take a seat in a throne like chair. As they do, their hands are cuffed to the arms, and a metal stock placed around their neck. Lynx then places a metal tube over their head, pours something into it, and sets it alight, apparently burning the audience member's head. The tube is open to reveal a grinning skull. Lynx quickly reverses the process, and reveals the audience member unharmed.

A female audience member (in reality, a plant) is then invited onto the stage. Lynx stands against an upright panel, and the audience member is invited to use leather straps to bind her into place. A curtain is drawn around, and Lynx's bikini top flies over. The curtain is opened to reveal the grinning magicienne. The audience member is invited to close the curtain again, but this time it is Lynx that emerges from the behind the panel, holding an item fo the audience member's clothing. She then opens the curtain to reveal the audience member, who is released and allowed to return to the audience.


Lynx's assistants then bring out a tall cabinet, and force her inside. She pushes her hands and feet through holes in the front. Metal blades are driven through the cabinet, apparently slicing Lynx into three pieces. The middle of the box is slide to one side. A door is open, and Lynx's bikini removed. A panel is then opened at the top of the box to reveal Lynx's worried looking face. The blades are removed, and the naked magicienne released. Lynx's famous nude fire breathing routine usually follows, unless the venue has fire restrictions.

Finally, a long metal bench is brought onto the stage. It has metal cuffs on it. Lynx lies down on the bench, and audience members are invited to secure her in place by means of the cuffs and padlocks. A metal cover is placed over the bench, and the assistants drive flaming torches into it, setting light to Lynx. The cover is removed, revealing only a smouldering skeleton. Depending on the venue, Lynx may then reappear in a tank of water.
