PassageLa Salamandre (France)

French theatrical magicians La Salamandre explored Durham’s medieval streets, leading audiences on a night-time journey that transformed their view of the city.

Mysterious and evocative, this beautiful parade used fire and flame to create an unforgettable show, delighting audiences on a dark winter evening.

La Salamandre create street performances using fire. Their pieces remind the audience of ancient rites and wild parties. They have performed in Athens, Dubai, Lisbon, Milan, Munich and throughout France.
