Thank you to all the cast members for their ideas and creative input. Thanks to La Tania for coaching Rose Nisker in flamenco so that she could realize her inspiration to combine aerial and flamenco dance. Thank you to Isaac Rappaport of Phoenix Rising for the crash course in fire staff and to Patricia Chavez for the quick lesson in fire breathing. Juan Del Valle’s costuming in scene two is from Rose Nisker’s gown is by Kim Haugan. Thanks to Andrea “La Canela” for bringing her culinary imagination to this event.
