Bonfire to Future

Townsville, 2001

Bonfire to Future was a Centenary of Federation event with Dance North in Townsville. Fire and dance combined to make an unforgettable evening for an audience of 10,000.

After conducting a training program in the use of fire and fire effects, artists and performers from NCP joined dancers from Dance North, students from Dance North’s associated schools of dance, children from local schools and the community at large to produce a spectacular vision for the future. The central image, a 12-metre tower lit by an internal chandelier, was painted and collaged with messages produced by hundreds of people to express their hopes and wishes for themselves, Australia and the world in years to come.
