Harvest Fire (2014)
Harvest Fire is a bold, exciting new work created by director Lewis Barfoot as part of the Aberdeen International Youth Festival.
Our inspiration comes from two annual festivals: The Burning Man Festival in America – a week-long festival in the desert, dedicated to radical self-expression and art (video). And the Harvest Festival (Lúnasa) in Scotland - a traditional time to celebrate the end of the harvest, a time for dancing, feasting, sharing stories and music.
Harvest Fire mixes Burning Man with Harvest Festival, candlelight with fire. But something else happens at this time of year- the veil between the worlds of the living and the dead loosens and the spirit world joins the living, after which things will never be the same.
