The artist literally play swith fire. Many methods of skillful display are performed in this art. A long pole of flexibility is chosen. At either end, cloth soaked in oil is tighly wrapped into a ball and set on fire. The performer holds the pole in the centre and twirls it to create a magnificent display of light and fire. Two burning torches can also be held ineach hand and moved skillfully around. Similarly, at the ends of a one foot long stick, a chain is attached. The ball of fire is fixed to the end of the chain. This is twirled during the act.

In another method, a chain is attached to the chest, to the end of which a ball of fire is fixed. One should rotate the ball of fire without touching the chain, only by the movement of the chest. In Pan Vattu, fire is made to burn on the spokes of a wheel. The person rotates the burning wheel, either standing up or lying down. In yet another way, the both ends of the chain are fixed with burning torches. The person bites the centre of the chain and rotates it without touching it.
