Fireball, the wondrous fire spectacular, is nearly here. Liz from Pyrotechniq gives DMSC a sneak peek of tonight’s festivities. It’s going to get hot.

What is Pyrotechniq’s live performance like?
Big, bold, interactive, and hot! Pyrotechniq is all about fire. Our shows blend theatrical fire dance with technical prowess, choreography, thematic costuming, music and presence.   Mix in a splash of danger that only fire can provide, the skills of the jedi, and plenty of accelerant, and you’re starting to get close.

What are you most looking forward to at Fireball? 
The crowd. Des Moines and Iowa have some of the best people out there. Folks are excited, participatory, involved, and fun!  We look forward to our trips to Des Moines like it’s Christmas.

 What are your upcoming tour plans?
Pyrotechniq has spent much of the spring and summer on tour.  With the end of summer coming soon, Pyrotechniq returns home to Chicago for a while, then off to Indianapolis, Southern IL and Minnesota,

 Are you going to do anything special/unique for this particular performance? 
Yes. Oh yes!  We’ve created a dynamic fire performance with an original Western Theme. Spanning more than an hour, it incorporates plenty of audience interaction, multiple environments, costume changes, fight scenes, fireballs, and a DRAGON.  We even have fire line dancing!  As to the rest, you’ll just have to come and see what else we have up our fiery sleeves….
