Walls come tumbling down. Chairs and tables explode, people disappear in smoke. In the middle of it all is a man whose hat spews fire: pyroartist Pierre-Alain Hubert, performing at a theater festival in Germany. The 53-year-old Frenchman is capable of setting fire to his hand during a conversation. The German event manager Klaus Schaeffer and his Frankfurt-based company Artmobil conceived a spectacle for the EXPO 2000 in Hanover. A unique multimedia art performance that attracted some 13,000 spectators daily. They were delighted when a burning man fell from the Hermes tower and the lake went up in flames. Katrin Kammer watched the event artists at their spectacular work.
