Crucible Fire Arts Festival in Oakland CA - July 9-12, 2008

If you're into fire, metal, dance, and all of the above, BART on over to the Crucible Fire Arts festival, coming next week!

Each July The Crucible's Fire Arts Festival celebrates creativity through fire and light with a spectacular open-air exhibition of interactive fire art, performance and the largest collection of outdoor fire sculpture on the West Coast.

The 2007 Fire Arts Festival attracted over 10,000 people from as far as England and Australia and featured The Fire Odyssey, an innovative production that blended industrial fire theatre with ballet, opera, hip hop, aerial dance and fire performance.
