The Flamebuoyant Productions team absolutely loves the Portland Winter Light Festival! It is a true joy to be able to share the love of what we do with the community. Back for a fourth year, Flamebuoyant Productions presents innovative, exciting fire performances that thrill and engage audiences of all ages.
Join us for the Glow Jam on Thursday evening to play with toys that glow in the dark to the fabulous music of DJ Manoj.
Come watch us heat things up at our fire performances throughout the weekend!
Shireen is an object manipulatrix extraordinaire! She has been vital to the development of Portland’s fire performance and circus community: she has been dancing with fire since 1999, founded and led the Oregon’s first conclave to Burning Man in 2002, produced two instructional DVDs on poi spinning, was a co-producer of Circus Artemis, an all-woman circus project, helped found and now runs Pacific Fire Gathering as the General Manager, and has participated in multiple incarnations of performance and instructional groups, including Flamebuoyant Productions, founded in 2005. An accomplished teacher as well as performer, she has taught circus skills, object manipulation, and aerial arts to students of all ages from the Portland Saturday Market to the beaches of India to the National Circus School in Cambodia. Shireen currently teaches weekly poi classes and private circus lessons in NE Portland.
