you don’t need to  be a spinner to appreciate this!

Pyroteque’s Amateur Series performance from the front! We find out about the results of voting tomorrow. I’m so proud of all of our members :D

So sad I missed this performance and the fun night. Glad that Hook (lostmonkeyproductions) got some good video though. This is Chantelle aka sk8nska on tumblr :D 

My fire troupe Pyroteque just had our first huge, choreographed performance as part of a local talent show in Augusta, Georgia. Big thanks to Chantelle aka Sk8nSka for finding out about it and linking me to the tryouts :D I’m the taller of the two fire hoopers, also making a brief appearance with staff during the second song. All of the costumes were hand-sewn by a couple of our members, and we planned all of the choreography ourselves. Everyone did such an awesome job!I can’t wait to do another one of this caliber! 

Chantelle spinning fire poi in front of Sundrees Urban Market. She is awesome, and it was so much fun to busk with her!

We’re Scheming to Entertain You

(Here’s something silly inspired by recent conversations about the proliferation of fire performers and spinyourownsoul’s hooping poetry)

We’re Scheming to Entertain You

There’s a fire twirler in every room
these days, it seems.

They’re lurking about
scheming to entertain you,
allying with burlesque
and belly dance sistren
to launch a full blown assault
on your hard-earned apathy,
threatening your freedom
to remain unimpressed.

Terrorists dropping wicks
into the fuel bucket of your soul,
lighting up what’s left
after your “usual” at the bar.

2012 Pyroteque promo, this time with music!
