Stumbled across angle grinding as a show. It seems to consist of showers of sparks and is often presented as an adjunct to fire eating, poi, and other fire effects. Can anyone tell me more?

It involves an angle grinder and steel plates that are strapped to various body parts. In the hands of a good performer (and a couple of the folks who do it, are) it's stunning.

The best at it, is LuciFire, who is also the originator. She has passion and style, and a beautiful sense of movement.

Thanks, guys, for your contribution to my heretofore neglected education.

Yes, that's Kiva. She used to work Coney Island a lot, and has successfully branched into other ways. She's a very good performer, and nice person.

Apparently you haven't seen a good grinder act. That's too bad.

You're in UK. Go see Luci.

I know. You have to hose him down once in a while, and you can tell him I said so!

Folks try to drown me too, once in a while. Water in the ears, water in the eyes, water on the brain, but what's a little hydrocephalus among friends?

You might want to check out this diminutive Russian performer. Her performing name is "Jewels".

Jewels does many of the Sideshow acts (escapes, pincushion, sword ladder, etc). She incorporates her Grinding routine with a ladder of swords. It is very dramatic and artistic.

Check out her performance video.


Her homepage is at: http://www.nothingimpossible.net/

I’ve seen both Luci (fire) and Jewels in action. In truth both give a great (and very sexy) show! I loved watching Luci’s suspension strip tease (although I admit that the suspension does give my stomach a bit of a knot!). Jewels version is dragging long drapes across the stage (very similar to the character in the move “The Cell” http://movies.yahoo.com/movie/1803242457/photo/132170 ).

These two artistes put a little of Cirque de Soleil into the sideshow. I guess we could call it Sideshow de Soleil!

David Lettterman said "Grinderguy is just not the same as Grindergal". All too true.
One of the last living 10-in-one performers. I wanted to be in show business the worst way, and that was it.
