What is Fire Theater?

"Fire Theater" is a creative concept involving the integration of fire arts and story-telling. Addled Muse features original narratives written in-house that encompass theatrical themes and prop manipulation. Additionally, Addled Muse productions involve circus and aerial acts, original music, dazzling animations, puppetry, and collaborations from local artists of varying mediums. Our goal is to integrate an array of local creatives and organizations into our productions, not only to cultivate creative collaboration within artistic community, but to also involve the local community, wherever we may be.

If you are interested in collaborating with Addled Muse, please contact us, we would love to hear from you!
