Posted:Hello interested individual.

I am a Melbourne based fire performer who works predominantly solo. Formally part of a troupe of three, my former partners have lost interest over time to the point that they no longer perform. I regularly get requests for duo performances – Hence I am in need of finding or training a new partner.

Key Desired Characteristics:
Energetic personality and a strong desire to perform with fire.
Good sense of movement, rhythm and body awareness.
Preferably female (most requests I get are for male female acts)
Melbourne based – preferably closer to city

Further but Non-Essential Skills:
Competency in multiple forms of fire equipment.
Circus skills: Stilt-walking, torch juggling, devil sticks, diablo, contact, etc
Gymnastics: Acrobalance and or tumbling.
Dance and / or Martial Arts Skills.
Painting, sculpting and or / costume making skills.
Musical skills of any form.
Puppetry; body prosthetics, stick, glove or marionette manipulation.
Fire sculpture, eating and / or breathing.

Successful applicant will receive free comprehensive training in all forms of fire equipment, body movement and fire safety procedures. Assistance with obtaining public liability insurance will also be provided.
