Since 2008 the island of Stromboli and it's constantly active volcano has been the inspiration for the Festa del Fuoco di Stromboli, that celebrates the transformative qualities of the element fire by creating a platform for the exhibition, exploration and exchange of fire/flow related performance and circus arts.
This short film by Tomas Sheridan affectionately documents the two week long festival's 2011edition.
This video was created in loving memory of Daniel Gordon-Levitt aka "Burning Dan" (1974-2010). Daniel was the
