Posted:'ello, this is my first post, so please don't be cruel, and yes i already did searches, so you can stop your traditional newbie welcome right now, anyways, i have a few questions:
ive seen a couple of pictures of people makeing anarchy signs with fire poi and wondered how it was done and how long the exposure should be for photographing it
secondly, im learning poi/ teaching poi with three friends, we have hopes to do group routines sometime in the future, such as cordinateing moves and such, anyways, i just wondered how much this had been done and if anyone has any tips
and finally, kind of a hippy question, what state of mind does twirling most compare to (dreaming, pain, giving birth(i guess thats the same as the last one), eating at a buffet, whatever)
peace and much luv

Do you mean they were making the shapes with poi, or were they maybe a fire scultpure in the shape of the symbol?

Posted:there are heaps of performance troupes that do choreo my tip is practise lots together as when ur in time it looks wicked when ur out of time it loses its effect. for me personally when im twirling and having a really good twirl (quite rare these days sadly) im not aware of anything else around me or even what im doing my body just takes over and my awareness steps out of myself, i find this only happens when im twirling in a remote place with only a small number of close friends around. usually when i twirl at our meets im focused on my technique

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?
