Fuego Carnal has won multiple awards, a list of five-star reviews and the hearts of the people that have flocked to see it. 2018 saw a sell out season for this high-octane spectacle of “wild stunts, exotic beats… mesmerising flames… packed full of magical jaw-dropping moments, fuelled by sensual choreography and a wicked sense of humour.

“Fringe at its finest,” The Adelaidian, 2018.

Fuego Carnal is presented by Dream State Entertainment (AKA Dream State Circus), which has brought light to the eyes and smiles to countless faces. Husband and wife team Jacob and Sophie McGrath created Dream State Entertainment in 2000, born out of a love and obsession, of the accessible, non-discriminative art of street performance and improvisational comedy.

Nineteen huge years later, over 3900 performances, in almost 40 countries, their art has taken them to some of the biggest festivals on the planet including Glastonbury, Edinburgh, Toronto, and Adelaide many gaining them international awards and recognition.
