The Fiery Maze unites two incandescent artists, musician Tim Finn and poet Dorothy Porter.

Conceived by Porter and Finn in 1995 as a ‘rock concert album’, the talents of these two extraordinary artists combine to produce raw, intimate songs about love, sex and obsession. To bring this show to life, Finn is joined on stage by the mesmerising Abi Tucker.

Porter’s previously unpublished lyrics deal with the disillusions of love, as well as the blinding moments of blazing connection. Porter is known for the visceral power of her language – for crafting characters, scenarios and poems which crackle with sexual energy. The journey into, as Porter suggests, “love’s hopeless fiery maze” is no exception.

Note: The Meriton Festival Village is a licensed venue. Under 18s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
