Fire Weavers

Set to a vibrant fusion of electronic and world beat music, the Ottawa Fire Weavers is a beautiful, feminine show unlike any other. Two women weave illuminated patterns of fire in a breathtaking performance of dance with fire poi , fire hula hoops, fire fingers and fire head piece. The hypnotic effect of skilfully manipulated fire creates an original and mesmerizing form of dance. The Fire Weavers have refined their show over many years. Their technical skill and artistic presentation makes them a crowd favourite both on stage and on the streets.
