Can a fire show be done indoors or only outdoors?

In principle, Verena’s fire shows are staged outside because the fire props cause smoke and fumes that can be dangerous in closed areas. There are some exceptions though, for locations with very high ceilings and a lot of room. Additionally, special liquids and props can be used to ensure a safe and wonderful show. Another indoor fire act that is much simpler but still very impressive is the Fakir Walk Act. Verena mingles with the audience, showing the art of fire eating and bodyfire with little torches.

How much space is needed for a fire show?

An area of around 5 x 5 m as the stage is needed, the ground should be fireproof. If the show area is roofed over, the ceiling height needs to be at least 3,5 m.

What other requirements are there for the location?

It is vital to make sure the proprietor of the location consents to having a fire show there. Please talk to the proprietor of your venue before booking a fireshow and/or put them in contact with Verena. She will explain the safety measures with them so that they can be assured as well. Another important issue to think about is loud music: since the fire shows are usually at night, there might be ristrictions concerning loud music outdoors after 10 pm. If that is the case, the fire show might need to take place earlier (9.30 pm, so it is finished by 10 pm) or the music might need to be player a little quieter.

What safety measures are there for a fire show?

Besides bringing all the show props, Verena has all materials with her to ensure the safety of her show. It starts with skaking of excess liquid from the props into a container so the chance of droplets during the show and the environmental impact are reduced massively. All props are extinguished with a wet blanket at the end of each act. The blanket is also an important tool in case anything should catch fire. For her own protection, Verena always brings with her an assistant who helps her with handling the props and who can intervene in case of emergency. Should any property be damaged at a show, all the damages will of course be paid by Verena’s liability insurance. From years of experience, she can tell you that this has never happened, but it’s always good to take precautions and stay informed about the latest developments in fire safety.

But isn’t that dangerous?

People often ask Verena about injuries of burns from the fire. She is happy to tell you that she never had any serious accident with fire. Smaller burns happen from time to tim, which remind the performers to never let their guard down and never lose their respect for the hot element. Yes, it is real fire, yes, it can be dangerous if handled improperly.
