Posted:So we've (most of us anyway) all heard of multiwicks, fire fingers, fire fans, cross staffs, ext., but a friend was telling me about a "cube"

Does anybody know anything about it? The way he discribed it, sounded quite promising.

Posted:Sickpuppy, here is a thread from a year ago talking about this. It is a cube of pretty large dimensions (at least 3 feet if not bigger at it's lengths, though hollow) which is then wielded and spun. Truly inspiring.http://www.homeofpoi.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/000033.htmlCheerios!------------------Pele Higher, higher burning fire...making music like a choir...http://www.pyromorph.com

Posted:i have a vid of a cube performance and they are very cool, the one i saw was more like 5 or 6 foot squared. they are trown and spun and look really good a fire cube would be pretty amazing

One fine day in the middle of the night,
Two dead men got up to fight,
Back to back they faced each other,
Drew there swords and Shot each other.

Posted:Cirque du Soleil has recently updated their website to a new format, so some parts are still under construction, including the photos. I'm not sure if you'll find any pics of it there. If you want to see it in action, check out their production 'The Journey of Man.' It's a film they did for IMAX (the home video/DVD version does not do it justice) consisting of five acts from their various shows. One is the originator of the cube act for Mystere doing his thing, and its the best part of the movie IMHO.

Posted:I'm currently working with cubes, I've been working a 3x3x3 cube, yesterday I attempted a 5x5x5 and it was too big so tonight I'm trying a 4x4x4. right now my proto types are made of PVC, if I can't find a way to wick them I'll start playing with metal but it gets heavy quick and trying to make a version that breaks down for transport is a big challange. I'm getting a demo filmed tonight and I'll try to get some stills off of it to post.working them realy isn't too difficult so long as you are pretty strong, basic staff and gyroscopeing moves.[This message has been edited by crispyx (edited 19 December 2001).]

Posted:I dunno, Neph.I don't know if, after spending for Burning Man, I'll be able to afford vegas (and I'm not entirely shure I'll beable to afford Burning man at all, at this point). Unless you just want to drive down there, see the show, play 5$ in nickle slots, have some ice cream and come home. Your car gets good gas mileage, right?And who the hell is Crispyx? Do I know him?------------------If you love something, set it on fire.
