The Bitten

Last night, I went to The Crucible to see a fire ballet, Dracul: The Prince of Fire - which was a spectacle that I highly recommend! The Crucible is a non-profit industrial arts organization located in West Oakland. They teach a variety of classes from welding, blacksmithing, ceramics, neon, to jewelry making.

The set for the ballet was made mostly of metal, and there were lots of pyrotechnics - in fact, there was not much traditional stage lighting and fire was used mostly instead. The aerial acrobatics were most impressive! The performances continue this weekend and next so if you can, check it out!
