Describe your show in a tweet? World premiere of Fuego Carnal, the ultimate fire and acrobatic spectacle, this is extreme circus, up close and very personal.

What was the inspiration behind your show? To create a show that was site specific for the new high-risk arts venue, Empyrean, also debuting at Adelaide Fringe. Fuego Carnal is full of spectacles that in any other venue would quite simply blow the roof off!
