Performing duo plays with fire
Street performer Pixie Della Fiamma, 32, dances with flaming fans lit by Davi Della Fiamma, her partner and boyfriend. Those are stage names. The couple performed Monday on Brawley Walkway in downtown Charleston. They call this part of their routine "ultimate trust" because Davi blows the fire from his mouth to the fans held about arm's length from her face.
Davi, 34, grew up in Putnam and Clay counties before hitting the road with Pixie. Davi breathes fire and also maneuvers flaming ropes and other items while Pixie dances with fire.
Street performer Pixie Della Fiamma does a fire fan dance on the streets of Charleston to the pulsating drumming of her partner, Davi, who finishes the show with some fire breathing. Davi, 34, is originally from Winfield and Pixie, 32, is from Beckley. They live in an RV and travel around the country performing as the Po Folks Caberet. Davi says it's better than sitting in an office all day.
