At the centre of the Fire Laboratory Dr. Kronovator and his team prepare their experimental flame and steam-powered contraptions that audiences are invited to activate. The fire laboratory runs for three hours during an evening, with the option of further consecutive nights. Depending on the site, the fire laboratory can be ticketed to control numbers or generate income. It can hold between 200 - 300 people at any one time.

The Fire Laboratory has been created for festivals and seasonal events by EEA in association with Lightfires. Please contact us for booking information.

A complete overload of the senses

The piece offers a superb combination of spectacle, performance and audience interaction, perfect for all ages and audiences. Kids loved being able to press buttons, make potions and experiment in the fire lab. The timings and set up is excellent, great team to work with, would thoroughly recommend.

A highlight of this year's festival and an original take on the fire garden experience with a fantastic sense of immersion. The interactive components animated the Central Gardens brilliantly and the soundscapes really added to the atmosphere and other-worldliness of the experience.

Roxy Robinson, Bournemouth Arts By the Sea Festival

Classic EEA - really exciting and super high quality work - with that slight edge of fear and the smell of kerosene. I couldn’t get my 8 year old to leave. He could have pushed that gas button all night.

Dr Kronovator’s Fire Lab utilises engaging performers, beautiful steampunk fire installations and attention grabbing soundscapes to deliver a creative, interactive and unique experience that was a real highlight of our Fire and Light event. A great show for any outdoor event.

EEA are committed to delivering their fire shows in as sustainable a way as possible, this means using responsibly sourced fuels such as wood from a sustainable source, smokeless fuels and the use of biofuel for the gas effects - this biofuel is called Futuria Liquid Gas https://www.calor.co.uk/sustainable-fuel/futuria-liquid-gas

The gas is supplied to us by a method called Mass Balance which is explained here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMffRftA3MM
