Circus Troupe Flam Chen to Première Caribbean Technology at Arcosanti

Since 1994, Flam Chen has been perfecting the art of circus fire performance in Arizona and around the Southwest. It's one of the country's premier circus arts and fire performance troupes, best known for its participation in the Tucson All Souls Procession, the city's annual public ceremony for which a Flam Chen show serves as the grand finale.

There aren't many places that can accommodate the troupe's unique needs -- places that won't catch on fire and are also spacious enough for aerial performers -- but, thankfully, the vaults at Arcosanti can. And on Saturday, July 13, Flam Chen will perform a new show that will incorporate "stilt, samba, fire and original Caribbean-infused electronica."
