Following on from the sold out phenomenon last year, VISUAL are delighted to welcome back and co-produce with Ireland’s most skilled fire performers, ROGU as they present their brand new show, MOBIUS. This is a family show that isn’t just for children but has something for everyone and will be part of the Samhain Festival @VISUAL for 2023. This spectacularly entertaining fire show has been enjoyed by families around the world from Ireland to Taiwan and will feature a special light show on the stunning grounds of Carlow College.
Mobius is the 3rd creation from ROGU's Guillaume Cousson and Ronan McLoughlin.
The performance is focusing on the conceptual ideas of fusing narration, movement, visual, and fire arts. We will explore each part, taking it apart for the audience to experience a unique journey. The fire will take on different forms and textures throughout the performance which will be done by using different fire techniques and components, such as charcoal, lycopodium, smoke, and a variety of fuels and additives for effect. The project focuses on combining different skills to support the central fire performance. Martial artists, dancers, magic practitioners, light designers, and props makers come together to elevate fire arts to newer, never experienced heights.
There are two shows with limited tickets for both. The first show is at 7pm and the second will be at 8.30pm with both lasting around 40 minutes. This event will take place on the grounds of Carlow College and is strictly ticket only for entry. Patrons are advised to dress warmly and wear comfortable footwear. Gates will open 30 minutes before each show the production and tickets are non transferable and non refundable.
CHILDREN UNDER 16 MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT. TICKETS ARE €6 PER PERSON AND CAN BE BOOKED ONLINE AT VISUALCARLOW.IE OR BY CALLING BOX OFFICE AT 059 9172400.
This event and the Samhain Festival have been made possible thanks to the support from Fáilte Ireland and Carlow County Council under the Festivals, Events and Tourism Venue Fund and the Arts Council of Ireland.
