PARADES & PRODUCTIONS
The Flame Community Trust collaborates with artists to create visual, cirque and dance delights for parades and community events.
We love to perform in and support community parades and theatre/dance productions.
From 2001 to 2006, FLAME created original community shows. We produced, directed and performed them for consecutive Queenstown Winter Festivals, Wanaka Snow Festival, Invercargill Winter Festival and the Napier Fire Festival. We trained locals in the art of fire dance, safety and performance. It was rewarding and memorable community work.
