All it takes is one spark, to set a fire.
Yoduh, aka Ernest Whitford, will bring the burning desire to entertain and a quality performance at a great price.
Safety is a top priority. Wet towel and dry towel to put out Poi in case of emergency and safety personnel nearby. This being said, no accidents have happened.
Providing Fire Poi (balls set on fire, swung on chains in intricate patterns) performances for small gatherings, all kinds of events allowing for the fantastic memories never to be forgotten, this will lighten up any evening and create a warm energy people are mesmerized by, talking about it for years to come and making the event that much more significant to the guests.
Price Range: $100$ and up
Gig Length: 4 - 10 minutes
What to Expect
It will be me, two ball and chain Fire Poi, dipped and lit on fire, using Coleman White Gas, spinning in intricate circles, patterns and tosses, each burn will last between 4 minutes to 8 minutes, depending on the amount of fuel used. Client may provide song tracks to perform to, but is not expected to.
-After the Poi is dipped, it is spun with great force in a safe area, away from the burn area, to diffuse the fuel, and spin off the excess fuel so no flaming drops go flying in random directions.
-Also a safety person will be standing by with a wet towel and a dry towel, wet towel for me (just in case,) dry towel for the fire poi (in case they get tangled and flame grows too big near my hands we can put them out without damaging the poi with the dry towel, or fatigue sets in.) Before you get worried, no accidents or emergencies have happened. We're working with a clean slate. Thanks to the precautions taken.
-It is made sure there is more than enough space to perform, if performing inside a structure it must be well-ventilated
You and your guests will have a great complement to your unforgettable experience or event, something you may or may not have ever seen before, and an extravagant ancient art form modernized. Most of all, quality, real fire and entertainment!
Hello my name is Ernest Whitford, 21, born and raised in Riverside, CA. Throughout my life I was curious about circus type acts (juggling type stuff), you wouldn't know it when I was growing up, considering I was always playing video games and tinkering around with the computer, but circus performers intrigued me. After becoming a tech-geek, at the age of 18 I picked up a pair of glowsticks (also a variation of poi, once connected to shoe strings or any kind of tether) and shoe strings they were tied to, that was my first experience with Poi, or "glowstringing" as some people would like to dissociate, anyways I played with glowsticks for about a year, then I finally got a real set of Contact Poi (a little ball handle, rope tether, then big play ball on the other end.) Well, addicted and in love with my new hobby, Fire Poi was then discovered and made me a bit fanatical about Poi and I knew it would be part of my life forever.
Poi is more than just a hobby, it's a discipline, a teacher, a release, a meditation, a guide, an exercise, it's good for my health, it makes me happy, the only downside to it is you can't learn everything it has to offer, because it just keeps going and going, if you learn everything everyone else has learned, there is still more to discover. Pretty neat eh?
From me, you and your guests will have a great complement to your unforgettable experience or event, something you may or may not have ever seen before, and an extravagant ancient art form modernized. Most of all, quality, real, fire and entertainment!
