This year I had the incredible opportunity to perform in the Fire Conclave at Burning Man 2014 with Surreal Fire based out of Sacramento, CA. This has been a bucket list dream of mine since attending Burning Man in 2011 for the first time and becoming deeply moved and inspired by the spinners performing before the man burn.
Before the show the wind and dust was so intense I was sure we weren't going to perform and I struggled not to feel sad and bitter about not fulfilling my dream. But! As it happens the dust and wind cleared about 20 minutes before we were scheduled to go on and the show went on.
It was incredible to perform with some of my closest friends at an event so close to our hearts. I'm not sure I'll do it again-it's months of preparation for a short show, but I'm happy to cross that one off the list!
Before the burn I also organized a photo shoot with Victor G photo and it actually happened! Quite the impressive feat for attendees of Burning Man ;) Props to my friend Veronica for braving the morning playa sun with me and playing safety!
