Intrinsic Arts is an arts and entertainment company from just south of Chicago. We were founded in 2009 as a fire performance troupe and have since expanded to include art in various other forms. We work with fire performers, live painters, jugglers, stilt walkers, aerialists, fashion designers, street entertainers, photographers, and DJs. We curate pup up art galleries in our 30ft geodome and have an array of art installations. We also do event production and promotion.
I hired Intrinsic Arts for firedancing at my Gatsby Party. They arrived on time, organized right away with other performers and gave a stunning performance. Very professional and friendly. I would hire them again in a heartbeat. Thank you so much!
Great visual show for our guests! Entertaining, professional with various fire stunts. Would definitely hire again!
It was absolutely beautiful. They did an amazing job. They were phenomenal. Great personality. Awesome show and I will definitely hire them again. Please hire this company. They are also by far the least expensive. One company quoted $400 for 2 fire people for 15 minutes. This company sent 6 ppl total for a 1/2 hour. Great performers at a great price. Thank you Intrinsic.
The Santa was very nice and did a great job. He arrived 15 mins early to our event and was a pleasure to have. We will definitely use this company again in the future.
The performers showed up on time and were flexible with our schedule and willing to wait for it to be darker and perform outside. Once they did start it was an entertaining show that was enjoyed by everyone. Exciting fire eating, throwing, and dancing. Cheers.
Though he ran late, Santa did a great job hosting our event!
Intrinsic Arts did a great job! Everyone has been complementing them! Thank you so much 🧡🖤
What a great team of performers!!! On time and very friendly. Outstanding routines. We had multiple performances throughout the evening each one different and better than the one before!! Thanks.
An outstanding performance by the Intrinsic performers. They were prompt, professional and engaging. I will definitely be hiring them again for my next event!
Great performance.. the guests were in total amazement.. professional performers
Our guest enjoyed them as they preformed during our cocktail hour.
The show was great! The two performers had different styles which made it very entertaining! They did put on a good show
They were prepared, cordial and went out of their way to wait and accommodate a performance beyond of what was asked of them. I highly reccomend these guys for entertainment for your special occasion whatever it may be. They will not let you down!
Great acts on time and professional.

As a fire troupe, we offer a wide selection of fire props and spinning styles. We are trained with poi, hoop, staff, double staff, rope dart, and fans. We incorporate tech, flow, and stage fighting into our routines. We do ambient and choreographed pieces. We have performed at indoor and outdoor events ranging from music and arts festivals to private parties and from corporate events to fundraisers. We are insured and trained in fire safety management. Performances generally last 15-60 minutes.
We work with multiple live painters. They utilize various styles including visionary, surrealism, portraiture, pointillism, and landscape. They have painted locally at various concerts and arts & crafts fairs, and internationally at Envision in Costa Rica. Our painters are available to paint at your event, for commissions, and have studio work available for sale.
