Slow motion “Painting with flames”

Our latest project “Painting with flames” shot on a RED Epic at 300fps by the Bristol based Clockwise Media.

We’ve had this project atureatured by MTV, VICE creators project and it’s prompted a soon to be aired interview with the Canadian science show ‘Daily Planet‘.

Rest assured, not everything we do is this large and edgy. ALL of our effects can be precisely downsized to suit a specific space.

Hosting a fire act indoors might seem intimidating (especially after watching he below) but we carefully consider each performance space to consistently deliver a spectacular and safe show.


Below excerpt from an upcoming interview to be broadcast on Discovery Canada

What inspired this project?

We were working on an interesting music video shoot with Clockwise Media. Their filming skills are absolutely fantastic and we had great fun playing to their camera.

The footage turned out magical and we wanted to share it with a wider audience, so Dan put this clip together.

What are the risks in your performance?

Burns are obvious, but most of the ongoing risk is in muscle strains from the fast, dynamic movements and hits, bruises, cuts from the props.

When and in which circumstances have you met?

We met on a performance in Shanghai in 2008

Why and how have you decided to become an artist?

Dan : I‘ve been playing and working with fire until I figure out what I want to do… I’m still looking.

Steffi : I started performing at 16 and always loved it.

At first I said to myself: Just once in my life I want to perform this skill for an audience. And then the next skill and the next challenge and so on…

When I started I never thought I could actually make it as an artist, but I’ve managed to never work another job.

How long do you practice?

Depending on our show schedule we train between 10 and 15 hours a week. Most of the rest of the time is spent on prop and costume maintenance or development, admin and logistics, and answering booking enquiries or traveling to events to perform!

What gave you the desire to choose this discipline in particular?

Dan : I always loved the fire prop’s unique movement patterns, finding new ways to move and flow with music is my ongoing inspiration.

Steffi : Fire has a fascinating intensity and character. Working with it is a challenge, but it’s very interesting. I love to dance and explore movement by combining spinning and dance.

What distinguishes you from other artists?

Dan : Intensely specialized in certain unusual fire props, and using large effects.

Steffi : We combine very different props in a unique and new way. As Dan and I haven’t specialized in the same props, it seemed at first almost impossible to create a duo piece. The patterns the fire creates are so powerful that working with different props at the same time is quite unusual. We’re starting to find very interesting ways of bringing our skills together.

What are big shows have you performed on?

Cirque du Soleil’s Zaia in Macau, Art on Ice and Himmel auf Erden in Switzerland, several “Ferias” in Mexico, etc.

In which countries have you already performed on stage?

Dan : 55 countries around the world

Steffi : 43 countries

Do you have any idea of  the amount of audience who saw you on stage stage since you started (in total)?

Dan : No Idea, must be quite a few million by now, hundreds of million if you count TV

Steffi : At one of our last live productions we performed for 15,000 people every day. In the one month we performed there, more than 400,000 people came to watch the show.

Do you practice another activity? Which one?

Steffi: I’m also an aerialist and acrobat.

Professionally speaking, who is your model?

Dan : I admire many other circus performers and athletes, but have no role model. This is still a very new discipline. Ido Portals movement culture is quite interesting though!

What are the TV shows or huge events to which you have participated?

Over the years we’ve been featured on a several TV channels worldwide. (TF1, SRF1, MTV, UK’s iTV, Columbia’s Caracol TV, etc.)

Our most recent appearance was for The John Bishop Show on UK’s BBC1.

What event, show or TV show are you most proud of?

There are so many, the ones to be proud of are when the pressure is on and you can have fun anyway, and walk off stage knowing you gave everything to that moment.

Is there someone who has always encouraged you in your artistic choices?

Dan : My Father and Brother have always encouraged me. It’s hard because performance takes you away from friends and family, to exciting places, but it’s often lonely. You need to encourage yourself and be sure of your own passion for your art

Steffi : Dan has been a driving force in my artistic development. He’s great at bringing it down to the essential.

Which motto could be yours ?

Dan : Anything but average

Steffi : Enjoy and be passionate

Mexico – Leon Feria 2013
We spent the winter months on contracts in North America and performed our fire shows and aerial acts at one of the largest Ferias in Mexico to over 15,000 people a day!
The audiences were fantastic, super enthusiastic about circus. What a pleasure to be welcomed with so much warm applause by people from all walks of life.

Week days was an early rise for performances at 10am! Not usual for us, but the audience totally made it worth
it. 5000 kids from surrounding towns screaming with joy. They’d never seen entertainment anything like our fire and pyrotechnics shows and were more than happy to share their excitement with us.

Aerial Ring Mexico - Lyra hoop dance

It was great to be working at the same festival as the amazing circus company ‘Les 7 Doigts de la Main’. Fantastic to train and hang out with some of their team.

London – Mercedes Benz Winter Ball – Fire and Ice
A recent corporate event where we performed with several other stunning circus acts.

We performed our Fire Fury act to bring some warmth to Mercedes Benz’s Winter Ball.
The gala dinner was held in the beautiful Lindley Hall in London, one of the stunning halls of the Royal Horticulture Society built in 1904 and placed on the Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest.

The setup and decor was beautiful with a central stage which had us performing in the round very
close to the audience.
The guests were more than warmed up after our fire show, with several comments quite taken aback by the sheer intensity. Nice to make an impression!

Lisbon – Boehringer Ingelheim
Corporate Fire Shows wow factor Fire jugglersBoehringer Ingelheim held an annual congress in the beautiful seaside Hotel Cascais Miragem with delegates from across Europe.
To round off the corporate congress we performed our duo fire show ‘Fire Fury’.
Our ‘Dragons Breath’ fireball effects were supplemented with a fire cannon array shooting across the front of stage. A combination which proved to be a fantastic hit.

Qatar – Heir Apparent’s Cup
A short high power performance in Khalifa International Stadium, Doha Qatar.
We supervised a team of five fire performers brought out to light up the stadium for the opening of the largest football event in Qatar this year. Special effects and maximum fire power were brought to bear on this unique event which was broadcast to fans worldwide!

UK – Festival of Speed – Goodwood
10 Freestyle motocross riders jumping over us and an F1 onstage as we let loose some massive handheld fire effects for this exclusive private production for Lord Goodwood’s event!
Aerial fire fans and our ‘Dragons Breath’ swords were just the warm up if you can believe it, finishing our act with a duo human pyrotechnic finale and supported with a  huge sky lighting fireworks display.

Edinburgh – Sky TV
An amazing arena setup for Sky TV’s annual family day. 10,000 people and two huge shows. A great chance to pull out all the stops and give our biggest effects the space to really light the place up! The clients confided that they were worried two people could not fill the 15 meter wide stage, but once they saw the first show they were completely blown away. What a rush to get such feedback!
