heartwarming, funny and powerful –
and the sparks fly …
As soon as night falls the tramps return. They bring fire to the squares of the town and they are looking for sparks – the inner sparks which animate everything. Fire kindles, fire fascinates, fire is dangerous and beautiful.
They play with fire, they reveal the fascination with fire which is never pompous, loud and showy, but soothing, powerful, amusing and warming. And the sparks fly. The public is astonished with the acrobatics combined with mysticism and spontaneity.
They know that it’s not only burning on the surface but deep inside – the sparks fly when the four cry ‘Let it burn! The world is what we make of it!’.
