The project FENFIRE was founded 2004 by Sebastian Berger and a few other ambitious artists in Vienna. FENFIRE worked and taught throughout Europe the craft of objectmanipulation especially in fire arts. The association presents from the start a high value on good technique and the combination with special stage designs. Today FENFIRE consists of two core members, Christiane Hapt and Sebastian Berger. Together with Michael Caden Pike from Scotland they work in the experimental trans-disciplinary field of juggling and object manipulation. Sebastian and Michael developed most of the common repertoire of their respective masteries.
FENFIRE works worldwide in the fields of corporate productions, theatre and street theatre, festivals, varieties, traditional and contemporary circus, they are also a board member of the Austrian Federal Association for Circus Pedagogy. Consisting both product designers and circus artists, FENFIRE tries to unite sculptural and dramatic arts in their productions in order to show their audience the verve of object manipulation.
