About Cirque de Fuego

Cirque de Fuego is a Vermont-based fire performance troupe providing event entertainment since 2014.  What started as a husband/wife duo quickly became a team of talented artists with varying skill sets to ensure a perfectly curated show for any celebration. Each Cirque de Fuego performer has received professional instruction over the years through various classes, workshops, and immersive fire arts training.


Because fire performing carries inherent danger & risks, proper fire safety precautions are a huge part of our job. Troupe creators Chris & Kim Cleary are proud holders of the E-29 Fire Performer Certificate of Fitness issued by the FDNY, the most highly regarded fire performance credential in the US.

Cirque de Fuego offers ambient performance, as well as solid-set showcases. Our shows include fire breathing, fire juggling, partner acrobat fire routines, choreographed pieces, and fire dancing with various props (torches, hoop, fans, poi, and staff). We have our own lighting, sound, and flame effects to create a magical stage wherever your event may be. We also create large-scale burning art for festivals, celebrations, and other events.






"Cirque de Fuego's fire performance is always the highlight of our yearly Flynn on Fire Festival! The energy they bring is incredible and they really help take our event to the next level. Every year, our guests rave about their show. And to top it all off, they are incredible people and a dream to work with!"

"We thoroughly enjoy working with Cirque de Fuego. The team mesmerizes our guests with their performances in winter and summer. They have proven to be flexible, working with us in varying weather conditions, and add shows at a moment’s notice. It is also clear that they have a strong emphasis on the safety of both spectators and performers alike."          ~Media Relations, Smugglers' Notch Resort, VT
