FRINGE 2017: Fuego Carnal – Empyrean – Gluttony – 4K

By Tom Eckert


Fuego Carnal is a landscape of family friendly S&M undertones circus, Spanish accents and quite a lot of fire.

Much like the stock examples of this type of show each performer appears to have a specialty that they perform for the crowd. many of these are very impressive but lose their awe-inspiring nature in the presence of the veritable multitudes of accomplished acrobats.

This show however is a testament to the fact that you can take something (more than) ordinary and set it on fire and suddenly it becomes incredibly entertaining.

Thrilling as the acts are the show seems to lack something of a creative soul. With ample opportunity to create stories or even use the fiery elements to create drama to create drama or commentary it is a shame that Fuego Carnal instead neglects this in favor of a flash of light and heat whilst performing an admirable feat. An end in and of itself as opposed to the means to some higher artistic aim.

Nonetheless thrilling and entertaining the performance could not be performed in any other venue and is still thoroughly enjoyable.
