As The Power Station once said “Some Like It Hot and some sweat when the heat is on” – well the crew from Fuego Carnal like it hot but they don’t sweat! From the thunderous introduction to get you in the mood, the next 60 minutes is full of fire, whips, and fearless acrobatic stunts that will leave you in awe. Basically, this show is HOT! HOT! HOT!
Fire maybe the integral element of the show but the performers are the star attractions! They had the audience gasping and oohing throughout the whole performance with their fire twirling, throwing, catching, balancing and swallowing. Did I mention the whips? Yes, you get fire whipping and throw in some loud, funky music and you have yourself one sexy show!
Our hosts for the evening are husband and wife team Sophia Garcia and Jacob McGrath who entertain us between performers The Bad Piper with his bagpipes of fire, Felina the Great with her cheeky yet sexy and sultry singing, Stevo Extremo the master of fire manipulation, Orissa Kelly the foot shooting flaming arrow extraordinaire, Airel Manix with his sword swallowing acrobatics and finally, The Ice Queen showing us unique trapeze and ice skating feats.
All the different elements of the show come together with a common theme of fire. You will cringe at the knife licking, be amazed at the fire burning stunts, laugh at the fun and cheeky banter and be mesmerised by the acrobatics. Fuego Carnal has it all and it deserves to be on your list of shows to see!
