Case Studies

The 2012 MTV European Music Awards – Frankfurt

The carnivalesque theme at the 2012 European Music Awards was the perfect event to set alight with the best show of fire play. The performance doubled as a huge party with dancers and acrobats. Featuring spectacular pieces from world renowned Cirque Bijou, an aerial fire ring, pyro backpacks and Spark Fires own dragon’s breath fire swords. Dancers sashayed across the stage with flaming hoola hoops and jump ropes, whilst larger fire and pyrotechnic elements by Cirque Bijou and Spark Fire Dance created a brilliant backdrop for the live performances and brought an authentically sexy, burlesque-style atmosphere.

It was an amazing production to be a part of that was beamed out on MTV’s global network of more than 60 channels reaching nearly 700 million households around the world.

Art on Ice – Zurich, Lausanne, Davos, Stockholm, Helsinki

As part of the Art on Ice tour Spark Fire Dance had the tremendous opportunity to dazzle the audience with a unique effect, setting the ice on fire.
Spark Fire performers made flames dance across the ice in intricate patterns while using pyrotechnics to bring the performance to life. One of the latest and largest effects was the Dragon fire swords used with Sparkle Fire effect, which created create a huge cloud of fire and glittering points like fireflies with the performer in the middle of it all.

How does the Spark Fire Dance team create unique shows ?

Dragon Fire

The energy of this phenomenon is one that needs to be experienced to be believed. The Dragon Fire effect was designed by Dan Miethke during his time with Cirque du Soleil, an effect boasting roughly textured flames with a tremendous visual and audio impact. The size of the flames can be controlled to suit the space of the venue. The sound of the flames and rush of heat guarantees a lasting impression.

This glittering addition to the shows creates a beautiful but tightly contained sparkle around the performers props. Used throughout their choreographies this stunning effect adds a touch of magic to the entire performance.

Special Elements of your choice

There are several ways Spark Fire’s team can wow your audience, depending on what you want them to see.

Do you want your TV host to wear a flaming hat? Perhaps, have the artists enter the stage with smoke trailing behind? How about adding a little something to an Olympic torch lighting ceremony?

We’ve done all this and more. We can work with directors and producers to brainstorm unique ways to bring our skills and effects to bear on your vision. We have a range of props and skills that can be utilised in different ways and incorporated into our choreography.

For a softer greeting have Spark Fire acrobats roving with fibre optic glow wands offering their own magical firefly effect.

Keeping safety top priority

We maintain the magic in our shows by making sure we practice and perform with the highest safety standards. Completely odourless, smoke free, soot free, non toxic specialist fuels are used, designed for guests’ comfort and with no impact to indoor venues.

The largeness of the effects are tailored to each location. The Dragon Fire can be precisely controlled, either reaching 8 meters high in a stadium or barely 3 meters above an indoor stage, and completely dependent on the venue’s space.

Spark Fire Dance have performed their acts in many venues with extremely strict OH&S regulations, from UK heritage listed buildings to luxury locations such as the Burj Al Arab, Madinat Jumeirah, Venetian, Wynn, Crown, Sands and MGM casinos.

Spark Fire Dance acts have been performed inside TV studios, casino resorts, on super yachts and in Hiltons, Marriotts, Kempinski & 4 Seasons properties.

World-renowned experts in their field, the Spark Fire Dance team also provide training to in-house technicians in advanced fire safety as well as specialist fuels procedures on some of the largest productions in the world.

Franco Dragone artists and technicians were coached in the use of specialist flame effect props and fire safety. Spark Fire Dance provided consultancy and coaching to Cirque du Soleil and also created bespoke effects for the 2015 European Games in Baku.

How we work with our clients

All our clients have unique needs which we take the time to learn and understand. Sometimes a turnkey act is the best solution, sometimes a bespoke creation.

By working collaboratively we want to bring your ideas to life in the most outstanding way possible. We will discuss ideas, themes and requirements in detail, going over the venue, audience demographic and aim of the event.

We can create a tailored proposal from this brief and modify the various options as required. We will always maximize the potential of all our resources to ensure our clients’ needs are met.

Upon agreeing on the show direction we will mix and preview soundtracks for some initial feedback. The artists and crew are cast, and costumes will be selected or created. Rehearsals are booked as needed.

On the day of the performance we will co-ordinate the technical light and sound elements to ensure optimal visual and auditory impact is achieved.

Our thorough preparations ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience for our clients.

Our job is to deliver, whether a dramatic or fun performance is called for, whether the venue is a club, palace, conference hall or anything in between.
