We ignited the passion of the community with a performance in Spirit Square in front of the Tidemark Theatre, Campbell River, to celebrate the Rain and Fire Festival, Friday Feb 25 and Saturday Feb 26, 2011.
The core group of NOVA dancers delighted with flaming swords, fans, poi, staves and hula hoops. The performance embraced the element of fire, each dancer moving with the flames and each other to celebrate the beauty of the sacred fire and the natural world.
This is a multifaceted story telling festival produced by the Campbell River Arts Council. The NOVA Fire show is only a small part of an exciting four day arts experience! Each year the festival is produced in a different community. The Campbell River Arts Council has been selected to produce this year's ‘Rain and Fire Festival of Story’ from February 24-27. Focusing on ‘storytelling, this Festival will feature artists and performers in music, theatre, dance, spoken word, and visual arts at venues around the downtown core.
Fire Shows will take place just after sunset both nights. Friday night's Fire Show will precede the Mother Mother concert at the Tidemark Theatre.
