Liz Campanella and Ashley Bertling, fire performers with the Pyrotechniq troupe of Chicago, are some awesome ladies. I was blown away by their skills as I watched them perform in a back alley in Wicker Park, with a sweeping view of the ‘L’ train in the distance. Let’s be honest, we all love fire— the way it dances and flickers from one second to the next— there’s something captivating about it. From fire umbrellas to flaming hula-hoops, I was in awe of how brave Liz and Ashley were and how they bridle such a beautiful element to turn it into an art form.

Pyrotechniq performs anywhere for any kind of occasion. If you’re interested in learning more about how you can book them for an event or take some lessons, click here.
