Relations of Fire
Lower Hewood Farm, Dorset

Fire is regarded as the highest active and adaptable element. One in essence, though manifests itself in three general species-celestial, subterraneous and culinary. It is the cause of all motion, consequently of all mutation or change in nature. It is the principle of all generation and the primal source of all forms. It is the nature of light. Found in the sun and the fixed stars, all light proceeds from this. The planets and comets and earth reflect it. And we, the bodies on the earth, observe this light. Turning towards the wild, this open-air performance regards dance, sound and installation and its relationship to pyromancy and husbandry, observing the lyricisms in their violent and concentrated actions.
