The Detroit Fire Guild is a group of fire and circus performers who’ve combined their talents to create one of the hottest and most fascinating shows around. They do both public and private performances, and the things they do with fire will absolutely amaze you.

When I spent some time with the performers, I got the distinct feeling that they were more than just a group. They’re really more like a family, and they have this incredible support system for each other that really emphasizes creativity and individuality.

We were treated to our own personal show at the Russell Industrial Center. It was a perfectly surreal setting for a perfectly surreal experience. You can’t help but be in awe of what it is the Fire Guild does.

As they demonstrated some of the techniques they use, I thought about the amount of practice that must go into an art form like this. When you’re playing with fire, there’s really not much room for error. They were breathing fire, twirling fire batons and dancing with rings of fire. It really was spectacular. If you’re interested in learning this art form or would like to check out one of their performances, look them up and check them out. It’ll be an evening you’ll never forget.
