HOUSE ON FIRE

"There is some kiss we want with our whole lives, the touch of spirit on the body. Seawater begs the pearl to break its shell. And the lilly, how it passionately it wants it's wild darling! At night, I open the window and ask the moon to come and press it's face against mine. Breathe into me. Close the language door and open the love window. The moon wont use the door, only the window." -Rumi


"In every instant there’s a dying and coming back around. Muhammed said this world, it’s a moment, a pouring that refreshes and renews itself so rapidly it seems continous, as a burning stick taken from the fire looks like a golden wire when you swirl it in the air, so we feel duration as a string of sparks." -Rumi


House on fire is an entertainment venue that has been built with blood and sweat for over 8 years. Remixing local and international artforms, mosaic and soapstone combinations create a cosmic blend of form and colour. An African Shakespeare style theatre holds the centre of the house/galllery/theatre/venue while an outdoor stage looks outwards to the mountains. A very vibrant team run the operation which host one major event a year, namely the Bushfire Festival 29-31 July 2009
