Fire Show Square
The power of flames tamed in the art of dance
Fire as a dramatic medium has always fascinated the theatre world.
For the most part, however, flame was considered something dangerous, an all-consuming, uncontrollable element. It was cultures such as the Maori of New Zealand and the Aborigines of Australia that first introduced us to fire as a purifying force and an element that enriches art. And so, in this country too, circus theatres have emerged that have learned to play with fire.
Every day, various fire artists present their fascinating play with fire to the audience at the Fire Show Square. All fire shows are free of charge.
