journal entry from 12.4.03 Firespinning at Cirque du Soleil

I get hired to fire spin out side the opening night party for the Cirque du Soleil new show "Varekai". I am one of 14 fire spinners/dancers and we have an absolute ball keeping the flame alive and spinning in turn either poi or staff or fire breathing. I lit up so many times I loose track of how many times I spin. Mucho thanks to Josh Egelston for putting this all together and Mark DeCew for doing fire safety and diligently watching us like a hawk during the event. The next week we go to see “Varekai” which is spectacular and awe inspiring and breathtaking. It’s a great celebration of all the extraordinary things the human body and spirit can do.
