Fire sculptures in the name of the dances

Published: 28 October 2013

The students fire sculptures were lit in the darkness at Campus Skellefteå. The sculptures are made by set design and prop making students. The course has its real final during "Dance in November Darkness" at Nordanå. The sculptures are made by welded steel wrapped in insulation and soaked in lamp oil.
