Definition of Empyrean "The highest Heavens where the pure element of fire is kept".
The venue reflects this definition, sumptuously decorated with luxurious quantities of fire retardant crushed velvet; a feeling of comfort and intimacy is unavoidable. As the lights come up, the rest of the world only meters away fade into a memory and only you and the entertainer exist.
The venue Empyrean is made specifically for presentation of the HIGH RISK ARTS.
It has no roof over the stage to cater for large scale fire effects or other tall props, like tall uni, chinese pole, aerial acrobatics etc.
Empyrean is aimed at Fringe and Festival audiences, to the performer the stage feels roomy to work, but the audience feel up close and intimate. "it is an amazing venue to perform in! "
