let the flames begin

Let The Flames Begin. lightfires has been creating bespoke images and events for over 12 years. Our effects have brought internationally acclaimed shows to audiences in their thousands and more delicate perhaps more surprising artistic uses of fire to smaller audiences. We can provide anything from a single effect to a piece of theatre, devise a whole pyro-animated performance, or craft a firework celebration to suit your needs.

  • Laban Theatre London (map)



Volta Flatulence, Caroline Trumpface and Daisy Parphead invite audiences into the Windibopslaboratory to investigate flatulence (yes we mean farts) and whether it has an impact on global warming. Three dancing scientists manoeuvre in this comical, fun world combining high quality dance, humour, strange sounds, smells and amusing characters.  On arrival, audiences receive a lab coat and fart name, transforming into farting scientists themselves and helping Volta, Caroline and Daisy prepare for the arrival of Dr. Windibops.

Windibops is highly interactive and sections include live experiments (silly and serious!) for collecting farts, illustration of digestion, tests to discover the colour of your farts, and if you are desperate, we have a parpline for all your farting troubles. The original soundtrack includes sounds of our inner workings along with lab sounds and beats.


Meet the cast and get experimenting at an extra special workshop for children 7+.

Co-produced by Candoco Dance Company, co-commissioned by Greenwich Dance & Trinity Laban Partnership, supported by artsdepot and Pavilion Dace South West, with Grants for the Arts funding from Arts Council England.
