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

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.

See the full lineup of performers, artists, and goings on at:

Join our special Cupola Iron Casting workshop running July 7-13th and wow the crowds with your iron pour!

Here's your chance to play an active role in this year's Fire Arts Festival! After learning the steps to create a mold and prepare iron and coke charges for the cupola, you are invited to participate in a public iron pour on the last day of the 2008 Fire Arts Festival.

I'm sure you can craft some kind of rocketship to transport you there for a few hours.
