Click through the tabs below to explore the exciting acts Femmes du Feu has to offer!
Silks are the beautiful foundation apparatus, and it’s where we began. The silks are billowing fabric, hung from any height, that the performer uses to climb, wrap and tumble. Requiring grace, a great deal of strength and flexibility, timing and style, this apparatus always impresses!
This is really what FDF is all about! We love hanging from new ideas and exploring new ways to do old things. Some of our past inventions have included a swinging/spinning pole, an anchor, the super hoop (a large flipping hoop), a steel ladder, and the mobile (a mash up of some favourites). Have an idea? We can do a custom build too.
The hoop is a large steel ring usually hung about 7 feet from the floor (but can be higher). The performer can dance on the hoop while it’s static, swinging or spinning. A single hoop can accommodate 1-4 performers simultaneously.
A dance trapeze is like a regular trapeze but hung much lower and on a single point. It has a large swinging/spinning circumference.
This apparatus is much like the silks but offers a very different “feel” or texture. As with silks, 1-2 dancers can perform on a single rope.
ROPE AND HARNESS
A creative design can make this apparatus work in any direction, whether it be in mid-air, the side of a building or wall, a rock face or even tethered to another performer.
This apparatus has reinvented itself like no other! Forget the clichés – a pole performance can convey so much more than what you might expect! Unknown to most, the pole requires a serious amount of strength, flexibility and skill. Femmes du Feu focuses on style and character in this empowering form.
BUNGEEBungee is another FDF favourite! This often quirky or comical apparatus can involve the dancer being harnessed in or not. Loops of bungee are used to offer a dynamic lift to the performer. Bungee can also be performed at a much higher level (minimum 30 feet) where huge bounce and flips can be achieved.
Femmes du Feu offer fire performance including fire poi, fire fingers, fire staff, fire fans and more… Fire performance is an exciting way to spice up any event!
Fire can be performed as a feature act, or as ambient and atmospheric entertainment for any event. Ambient fire is very effective while guests are arriving to an event, for example. Performances can range from solo, to duet to large groups. Perfect for outdoor and evening events. Performances can be catered to suit your event from music choices to costuming.

Chose from our repertoire, have ambient dancers create an atmosphere, or have something new and original created specifically for your event. Dance styles include contemporary, modern, acro dance, L.E.D. props, hip-hop and break-dancing. Femmes du Feu guarantees to captivate and entertain audiences with high energy and beautiful choreography.
