Why are we so entranced by fire? Are we mere moths pulled to its heat and light? Is it the way lapping flames create themselves from the fiery consumption of all they touch, like sweet kisses from Shiva, the Hindu god of destruction? Or is seeing such a potentially dangerous force wielded expertly kind of a turn-on? Its the latter, we think, in the case of La Fiamma. The group shares its passion for Poi, the traditional New Zealand art of fire-spinning, on Friday, August 1.
Fri., Aug. 1, 8:30 p.m., 2008
