Pyrokratia (Pyrocracy) is a performing group of three young women from Tampere, as well as the Fire and Flow Arts Association, founded eight years ago. Pyrokratia has toured at festivals (Ilosaari, Ruisrock and Kosmos festival) and has also been successful in e.g. Fire Artist’s World Cup. Pyrokratia presents a theatrical performance called Firedream, in which adventures take place in three different worlds. The show includes fireballs, fire skipping ropes and firehoops, as well as quick costume changes.
The performance features a multi-level reflection of balancing between good and evil. The theatrical performance explores the frontiers of dream and reality, and is full of speed and visual candy.
Curators’ comment: The fire show of Pyrokratia is impressive, interesting and multidimentional. The young artists are definitely going to heat up their audience with their experimental circus show.
