Flaming hot Psychedelic Theatre to entertain and amaze guests yet again

A night of flames, fire and nature is the light at the end-of-the-year tunnel when the popular Psychedelic Theatre performs at the Afrikaans Language Monument in Paarl on Saturday, 28 December 2019. The graceful fire dancers and their various burning objects will captivate the audience for an hour with breath-taking fire tricks, music and choreography. So, come and enjoy an unmissable summer’s evening with friends, family and picnics during the twelfth ‘Picnic on Fire’ performance.

After all, Lanél van der Kolff, actress and founder of the Psychedelic Theatre, as well as her talented co-dancers look forward to welcoming residents, tourists and holidaymakers at the Taalmonument for an unforgettable performance that will surpass your imagination. The daring tricks and storytelling will enrich your sensory stimuli, as the visual representation ranges from physical theatre to interactive fire games, which will guide you to another level of theatrical experience.
