Abstrakt. The interdependence of the contents and forms in the art of visual design of the stage space by fire and pyrotechnics has been analyzed; locations for public events using pyrotechnics were described. Ritual fire is recognized to be an integral part of the protodesign of religious structures of ancient Slavs. In Kupala rites, fire was used both as a game requisite and as a designing tool for a public space in which a ritual act was taking place. The flame of the Kupala bonfire can be interpreted as a static objectfire design tool for public space; candles in the Kupala tree, in wreathsbaskets on the water, fire wheels — as moving floral and fiery design tools. Modern pyrotechnic sights contribute to the popularization of public space. Its architecturalspatial characteristics influence the choice of directors about design option of stageviewers’ space and the filling of the pyrotechnic scenario with the relevant elements.
