Adelaide’s West-End fires up for Winter Solstice

Light Square, Adelaide, will fire up for Winter Solstice, with fire installations by Dragon Mill School of Fire Art

Adelaide’s West-End will light up for the winter solstice, with a entrancing fire performance each Friday and Saturday night from June 2 to 24.

The free event is tipped to be a solstice experience like no other, with a theatrical fire show telling a story of the winter solstice, with an installation of moving flames and explosive fire effects.

Hosted by Dragon Mill School of Fire Art, the experience at the Unseen Grounds in Light Square will run each Friday and Saturday from 6-11pm, and is something to captivate the whole family.

A range of food vans will be offering winter-warming eats, and beverages will be available from a pop-up bar, run by the guys at Light Adelaide.

Dragon Mill founder and director, Tim Goddard, said the event would showcase installations of fire, never before seen in Australia.

“The choreographed fire-shows are going to be epic,” he said.

“It will be a place of contemplation and reflection, as people experience the feeling of the Sun’s rebirth through fire temples and an expanding halo of flame, moving softly and powerfully overhead within the solstice installation”

Before each night’s main event, a roving act of Dragon Mill performers will appear at different locations in the west-end, showcasing a sneak-peak at what’s to come.

“The roving acts will add another element to the festival, with dance-based theatrical fire performances, leading the sun to the longest night, and the people to the Unseen Grounds.”

He said roving fire performers would be putting on shows at locations around Peel and Leigh streets, Gilbert Place and in the plaza area near Hades Hula House.
