Compagnie Carabosse (FRA)

"Incredibly beautiful." The Guardian, UK
"A glowing fairy tale." CULTURE24.COM

For more than 20 years, French artists Compagnie Carabosse (FRA) have been putting landmarks around the world to the torch from Stonehenge to the Kremlin. Now, over four nights, these luminary alchemists will transform the City Botanic Gardens into a dreamscape of mystery and revelation.

Huge spheres of leaping flames, sculptures that flicker and dance, fiery urns that cause shadows to play, and a soundtrack every bit as brilliant as the garden itself – making your way through this wondrous and maze-like garden will inspire awe and reverence in equal measure.

Fire Gardens is an otherworldly experience to spark your imagination, touch your heart and fill up your senses.

Fire Gardens delivers a primal experience, a respectful celebration of the beauty and power of the elements: there is fire of course, but also air and water. It’s a truly beautiful sight to behold this holy trinity.” ARTSHUB

Each Fire Garden is an original script written for a particular place; a one-off creation, short lived in a particular place, a lived-in setting, visual, musical, with sounds and sensations. So each project is different and each crew is different and of variable size but made with professional artists from street art that follows the Company around the world.
