An incredible fire sculpture comes to life, if only for a few brief moments.
Of all the fire-based performing arts on show at the Palais de Tokyo, the most breathtaking and dangerous has to be fire breathing. Fire breathers can produce amazing streams of flame that are best admired from a safe distance. As anyone knows, fire can get out of hand very quickly if not handled properly.
And while professional fire breathers follow strict safety procedures, there are still risks involved in working with open flames and combustive fuels. Accidents can, and do, happen, sometimes with deadly consequences.
