In numerous poetic and philosophical texts, Fire is an expression and symbol of Spirituality. The light of Fire illuminates space and drives darkness away – just as Spirituality shines through  human life. It is this metaphor that is at the core of the performance, which employs language that is poetic and allegorical, yet easy to follow.

The Soul’s quest is difficult and unpredictable. Seeking Light and its Freedom, it goes a long way…

Fire Theatre Mime Company has a unique presence in this country’s theatre life. Established in 1994 by Elena Pap and Plamen Radev, two directors working in tandem, this independent company is a leader in mime and outdoor theatre in Bulgaria, with the two directors developing the genre of fire theatre, which features a synthesis of the arts of mime and fire. In its perfromances, the Fire Theatre Mime Company further uses masks and puppets, fire paintings, characters on stilts, carnival performance techniques, and often live music.
