Fire is a powerful, mythic element. Humans have always been fascinated by fire; it has played a significant role in our history and molded our very way of life. Since the dawn of civilization, cultures have used fire as a form of artistic expression and also for warfare. For artists, fire can be both subject matter and the means by which the art itself is created. Fire performers have a deep respect for the flame and know that by no means do they ever have total control over it. At The Crucible, you can learn to safely manipulate fire’s captivating power, and learn to make and use various tools like poi, fire staffs, hula-hoops and fire rope dart.
