How can we turn light art into advertising? Applying extensive personal experience to the art of poi with the new top end Visual Pixel Poi from Pyroterra; Arthur can take any image or word and spin it into the air, animate it, make it change colors, and generally breathe light into it.
What is poi and what am I spinning, you ask? In the Māori language, poi can mean the physical objects used by the dancers, the choreography itself, or the accompanying music. Some legends indicate that it was first used by men to develop wrist flexibility for the use of hand weapons such as the club-like patu, mere, and kotiate.
Modern poi uses many other physical arts and often includes various schools of dance and many object manipulation arts. Poi is practiced around the world and can be seen at large festivals that include: Burning Man, European Juggling Convention, and the Fire Dance Expo.
Arthur Rockstraw has been practicing this art form for over three years and have built up a repertoire of moves and can tailor a performance to the needs of the show.
