I have always been amazed by performers that eat fire and swallow swords.
I find my self wondering... how are they doing that?
And I wonder ... do they ever burn themselves? Especially when they are learning the routine.
Are these performers brave and courageous or would you call them daredevils?
Is this considered a talent or is it a sport?
Anyway, thought I'd share the following with my friends in blogger land.
~ From a recent performance at the 'Flying Monkey' in Huntsville Alabama.~
Rosewood, Fire, and Steel combines classical guitar with the ancient art of sword-swallowing, dance, and fire-eating for a performance that is both musically and visually thrilling.
The duo teams up guitarist Phil Weaver with Patricia Forrest, who has an extensive background in dance and musical theater. She was a member of the Huntsville Ballet Company and danced in the Nutcracker as well as other ballets. She is a member of the Sword Swallower's Association International, a very exclusive group of only a few dozen members worldwide.
Have a super great weekend !
