After presenting their female giant Euterpe at last year’s Burning Man, street theater group Carros de Foc is making its second appearance at the Festival with Step Forward / Joining Minds, bringing Euterpe and her grandfather Alberto together. The two giant puppets, 20 feet tall and fully articulated, meet around their huge table. Euterpe, an example of self-acceptance, and her grandfather Alberto, who shares interesting experiences and accumulated knowledge, will interact with visitors encouraging them to discover and express themselves freely.
Carros de Foc (Charriors of Fire) is a company founded by Miguel Ángel Martín Bordera, son of a renowned fallero artist in Alicante. From the beginning, the company has evolved away from tradition and created a new concept in urban street theatre, creating its own unique signature by the use of giant mobile marionettes. Chariots Of Fire aims to immerse the spectator in a magical world enhanced with image, sound and light effects. (Spainculture press-release)
