If you’re in the Bay Area, The Crucible’s Fire Arts Festival starts on the 11th (tomorrow)…
From July 11 to 14, The Crucible will celebrate artistic creation inspired by fire and light at the Seventh Annual Fire Arts Festival with a spectacular open-air exhibition of interactive fire art and the largest collection of outdoor fire sculpture on the West Coast.
Here, you will see artists who work with fire, taming and shaping this wild element. Flames flicker on the antlers worn by stiltwalking performers; dancers spin flaming balls and hoops of fire.
The centerpiece and finale of the Festival is The Fire Odyssey, a modernized theatrical interpretation of Homer’s epic poem.
