Tricks of the Light

Fire  ♦  Comedy   ♦  Dance

Kansas City's premiere fire performance duo, Tricks of the Light dances with flames, draws with light, and fights fire with fire. Their performance defies the danger of the elements.

Featuring the talents of Cyricx, the martial arts master, and Viollca, the graceful dancer, Tricks of the Light’s mastery of exciting and unique fire props such as nunchucks, the “dragonstaff,” hula hoop, and swords thrill audiences young and mature alike. With over 20 years combined experience, the duo has a proven record of safety. 

Their interactive style of stage show has been developed from years of busking. By mixing fun antics and playful banter with excitement, drama, and dance, they elevate fire spinning as a performance style.

Tricks of the Light does more than put on a performance – they create a memory.
