Event Details

The Crucible presents a Flamenco-infused evening filled with live Flamenco music, Spanish food and drinks and Crucible industrial arts demonstrations highlighting glass blowing, glass fusing, glass cold working, machining and kinetic arts. The night’s entertainment will fuse the passion of live flamenco music and dance with fire, aerial acrobatics, blacksmithing, glass work and kinetic machines all on one stage.

Flamenco dancer Juan Del Valle and aerial silks Flamenco dancer Rose Nisker will perform together in their first collaboration of El Fuego Fatuo, a story of love, temptation and betrayal based on the ancient legend of the fuegos fatuos: spirits that appear in marshlands and graveyards as plumes of fire in the night.  They will be joined by Crucible blacksmithing instructor Chris Neimer, who will hammer hot metal into passionate forms to the flamenco beats.

Guests will also enjoy live demonstrations of and mini lectures on glass blowing, machining and kinetic art throughout The Crucible studio, as well as a student and faculty art exhibition.
