Fire Spinning Finger Puppets. Hand puppets who perform the spinning arts, such as; hoop, poi, staff, rope dart, fans, and flow wand. This project was created out of the love of fire art and the inspirational fire marionette Falcor, created by Sam Perry. To view Falcor dancing visit these links:

The Spinning Fingers' mission is to spread awareness of the spinning arts and puppetry through captivating and unique performance art. Our goal is to raise enough funds to build a transportable stage and tour to various art festivals and street fairs along the east coast. The fire safe stage will be 4’ x 5’ x 6’ and styled to look like a big top circus tent. Resource will also go towards building new puppets. We will upgrade our friends Poi Bunny, Hoop Kitty, and Safety Goat to be bigger and easier to view from a distance. In the works there is a staff spinning Octopus, a flow wand faerie, a fire flea acrobatic team, an aerialist, and a rope dart spinning monkey. There are many more possible characters, and every dollar will go to building a bigger and better fire puppet circus. Online video media will be generated for all these characters and shared across the world. This project has been selected by the Firefly Arts Collective as a 2012 grant recipient, but we did not get all our requested amount. Now to make this project work we need to raise money to cover travel costs, additional building materials, and components to create new characters to join our cast. Please support this amazing endeavor.
