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.
