History in the
FireWorks Dance Company
(est. 1998) began well over a decade ago when a collection of Melbourne's finest
independent fire dancers, jugglers and percussionists began to
collaborate under one banner. No-one could have foreseen the impact that
such a group could make on a live audience and the public response was
overwhelming. From this beginning, FireWorks Dance Company was born.
These early performances
were staged in the heart of St. Kilda, and this location has since
become internationally recognised as a thriving Mecca for fire
performance artists. FireWorks Dance Company was the only one of its
kind at its conception, and spent many years showing audiences, agents
and venues that they go the extra mile, to embody the highest levels of
professionalism and presentation.
As a result FireWorks
Dance Company was responsible for inspiring the influx of fire artists
we now have in Australia today. Australia is lucky to have such a large
number of fire professionals, enough to rival most other countries in
Once FireWorks got it’s
foot in the door and became recognised as a high quality professional
company, offers to showcase it’s talents for major events and
opportunities came pouring in. Some of the most memorable moments being
a documentary for ABC TV 1998, 2001 Telstra Awards, 2005 Deaflympics Opening
Ceremony, 2007 Moomba Waterfest and the Kenworth 100 year anniversary in
Alice Springs. Not to mention the awesome time we had starring in movies
such as Hollywood blockbuster Queen of the Damned and Aussie comedy
2003 saw the launched of The Secret Cabaret. This
production is a trip back to the days of the circus sideshow with a
touch of Vegas thrown into the mix. It was the start of the “circus
cabaret” genre, borrowed heavily from the classic German cabaret scene.
Presented is the cream of the substantial catalogue of FireWorks
performances...with a few surprises along the way. Everything old is new
again and so it is with cabaret, as this style of entertainment makes a
come back. After The Secret Cabaret’s appearance at The
Spiegletent for the Melbourne International Arts Festival, this new
cabaret style influenced the nature of “Le Clique” and its influence is
still seen to the present-day.
FireWorks has run many fire, circus and dance workshops
since it’s conception. They share their skills with the community, many
of whom have gone on to become avid fans. It is this passion and
inspiration that has propelled the heart of the company from its humble
beginnings in St Kilda to the respected and world-class company it is
