Campbells Cove, Vivid Sydney, Fire Water

Fire Water during the Vivid Sydney festival was a theatrical spectacle that combined flames and the harbour. The show at Campbells Cove at The Rocks was a recreation of the fire that sank the convict ship The Three Bees in 1814 and sent its cannon balls blazing across the harbour. The performance included an Aboriginal smoking ceremony and live music performed by Coda.
