Creative Flame can employ over 30 different fire tools in a show, from artforms around the world… including several unique inventions. These include: Fire Staff, Fire poi, Fire devil sticks, fire juggling, fire diabolo, fire swords, fire hula hoop, fire belly dancing, fire fingers, fire palm torches, fire whip, fire fans, fire rope dart, fire nunchaku, fire eating, fire breathing, fire painting / fakir / painting, fire dragon staff, fire meteor, unconventional fire apparatus, fireworks manipulation, green fire, pyrotechnics, flame effects, propane poofers, and the list goes on….

LED/ BLACKLIGHT /GLOW TOOLS aka: “digital fire.” All the same tools we use on fire have an equally impressive glow version, adapted to glow in the dark with LED lighting technology. Some of the more fantastic effects are achieved with Glow Juggling, Glow Hoop, Glow Poi, and Glow Staff. Great for indoor clubs, low-clearance party tents, or other events where fire is either not allowed, or desired.

Again, every tool we set on fire holds its own weight as its own art form. For daytime events, we may attach flags or streamers to almost everything for a dynamic effect…Plus more.
Add to that, Unicycle, Cigar boxes, stilt walkers, whip crackers, balancing, and more.

We’re big fans of the lost art of sideshow. Some acts include: Bed of nails, Glass Walking, grinder girl, Staplegun body, Block head, and more gross stuff.

We have unique abilities and specializations beyond fire.Check us first. There’s more to us than fire.
