How Fire Weavers came to offer a great fire show.
From 1996 to 2006 these 3 women had begun their discovery, their exploration and their development of the art of fire dancing through exchanges with other artists and through training and self exploration of this art form that was new to their part of the world.
In 2002 and 2003, Sophie and Amber began to perform professionally with fire.
In 2003, these two professional fire artists joined forces to create the Fire Weavers.
2004 saw the debut of the Fire Weavers show, made up of beautifully choreographed fire juggling, fire poi spinning, fire torches, and single and double fire staff spinning accompanied by a blend of world beat and electronic music.
2005 saw the introduction of fire hoop solos with both single and dual fire hoops, as well as more intricate close-up partner dancing in both the poi and fire torches routines. The dance is performed inside a circle of flaming bowls, which adds an element of drama to the performance.
From 2006 to 2008, the show was taken to an even higher level each year with more advanced technical skill and artistic presentation. As seasoned performers, they continuously add new elements and refine their choreography.
In 2009, Amber spend 6 months in Buenos Aires learning and training in tango dancing. During that time, Brigitte joined Sophie for new and exiting duet show bringing her hoop expertise and some new elements to the show such as a fire fan duet.
2010 saw Amber returning to Canada and the three got together combine all the best choreography in the greatest show so far, the Fire Weavers trio.
The shows now include sensual fire fan choreography, some breathtaking staff manipulation, intricate poi moves and daring fire hoop choreography. The duet and trio show is always full of close-up complex tricks and stunts, but the show is much more than just technical moves. Always keeping in mind the effect they have on the audience, the show has been put together and choreographed to both mesmerize and make people react and take notice.
On special occasions, the Fire Weavers have performed with live percussionists and other fire artists.
Due to the illuminated nature of the show, it is most impressive seen after dusk, although we can also perform indoors under certain conditions.
