I am a fire and light performer specializing in poi and fire snakes. I have a unique style that I have cultivated over the past 15 years, that never disappoints. I have performed at festivals, shows, and private events from Maine to Chicago and all points in between. I can perform to any type of music, or without; just enjoy the sound of the fire as it defies the laws of physics. I spin the biggest fire and the brightest LED poi on the market; very few can match my skill and my equipment. I am fully insured, professional, punctual, and offer competitive rates.
Price Range: $200- $2000
Gig Length: 30 - 300 minutes
Insurance: $3,000,000 - Specialty insurance for fire performers
What to Expect
Expect big fire and bright lights. Expect a lot of movement; I need at least a 12' diameter to fully showcase my ability , although I can and will work in a smaller area. I change heights and eye levels, as well as getting on the ground for some showy tricks that always please. My typical burn times for fire poi and snakes are 4-5 minutes. With my LED poi, I can spin continuously for about 20-30 minutes per act.
I have been spinning poi for 15 years, and fire poi for 10 years. I have an effortless, flowing style that I can time to any beat. I am a consummate professional. I am never late to gigs, I never back out once I make a commitment, and I will always treat the client with the utmost respect. I have a unique style, specializing in speed and tempo changes, plane bending, and first and foremost that it is a dance form. I believe that a performer is nothing if they do not involve the audience in the performance; I try to keep the crowd engaged as well as entertained.
Additional Booking Notes
I have no specific requirements, although I prefer at least a 12'-15' diameter performance area. When fire performing, I need an additional 4-6' of space between myself and the crowd, along with a safe area for refueling. This includes an area with no foot traffic, non flammable surfaces, and at least 6' from the performance area. This is for the safety of the audience, performers, and the professional reputation of those holding the event. When performing with LEDs, I prefer to be I'm the middle of the crowd, with enough room to maneuver.
Some kind of roped of section or stage. I supply all gear, including fire blankets, fuel, and fueling station.
