Anton van der Vyver

photographerMartin_Van_Niekerk025

Anton began fire dancing in 2004 as a hobby and a distraction but his relentless passion for fire and knack for grasping technical skill catapulted him into the performance arena. With a grounded style and commanding performance presence, Anton adds a strong masculine element to performances. His skills range from single and double fire staff; fire ropes; fire breathing and eating to juggling; stilt walking, guitar and djembe drumming.

When he is not performing, Anton engineers fire props and burning signs for The Psychedelic Theatre and feeds his other passion, which is creating unique hand-molded leather masks and hats.
