These images are of other performers using a wide range of fire based props.  At some point, I will divide the images into separate galleries by the kind of fire prop used.  The most popular  by far is the poi, a fire ball on a chain in each hand, whirling around in all kinds of patterns.  This requires a high degree a coordination between right and left hands, since hitting yourself with a ball of fire can be very painful.

Many of these performances are very dangerous and should never be done under the influence of drugs or alcohol or without a safety person handy to put you out.
