Great Balls of Fire
Birmingham Hippodrome

Great Balls of Fire is an interactive application commissioned by Birmingham Hippodrome and designed for the BBC’s Big Screens.

Participants are accompanied on screen by three theatrical roaming fire-eaters that are desperate to be fed fireballs.! The audience is tasked to feed the fire-eaters by guiding the fire-balls dropping down the screen in anyway possible, using their bodies, limbs or any type of motion to target the fire-eaters! Feed the heads too quickly and they start to over heat and vibrate before bursting at the seams!

Originally designed to run on the BBC ‘s Big Screen in Birmingham, Great Balls of Fire ran across the entire network of 20 screens.
