FENFIRE – Fire Illusion Artists was founded in 2004 by Sebastian Berger and Markus Liszt. From the very beginning, the Association of Young Artists works and teaches throughout Europe and represents a high level of technicity . Sebastian Berger developed some of today’s custom 3-bar juggling patterns and countless figures of the “Fishtail” stick balance technique. In 2006, FENFIRE organized one of the prestigious “ÜberEuropeFesitvals”, which teaches master classes in juggling technic and holds performances.
FENFIRE performances have been different from traditional fire shows right from the start and have quickly gained international renown: eg in 2005 with “Geometry of the Flames” (premiere in Glasgow, Play Festival) or in 2011 with the award-winning show “Alps on Fire” (premiere at Artisti di Strada, CH).
