About Combustion Inc.

Combustion Inc., formerly known as The Floasis, changed names and became a non-profit organization in 2019. Our mission remains the same; To spread flow and fire arts as a form of meditation, exercise, and community both as a hobby, and professionally.

Combustion Inc. is also dedicated to raising the standard of safety for fire arts and performance. We offer a two-part NYC-based fire safety course geared towards fire artists that is accepted as a prerequisite for licensure as a fire performer through the FDNY.

We desire to expand the presence of flow and fire arts in NYC by raising the number of venues hosting safe and legal fire performances. We offer consulting services for venues interested in hiring fire performers, and also learning about the permitting and inspection process' required by the FDNY.

Our final mission is to foster a positive relationship between the FDNY, fire performers, and venues in NYC. A positive relationship between these groups will support all of our goals of a strong flow and fire arts community, safe fire arts practices, and the spread of legal fire in NYC.
