Show time at the Manhattan venue is 9 PM Sept. 8; doors will open at 7 PM.

Inspired by Joan of Arc, Fire Burning Rain, according to press notes, tells a "futuristic story of a heroine’s journeys to free ‘the light’. The people of the upper world become devastated as the natural resources of the earth are depleted and their bodies have grown into buildings and wires. The heroine is their only hope to retrive ‘the light’ to save the dying earth and humanity. The heroine’s pilgrimage to the magical and eerie forest of the underworld begins."

The 70-minute performance will include live music, modern dance, elaborate costumes and digital integration that "envelops the audience in a dreamlike world."

Highline Ballroom is located at 431 West 16th Street, between 9th Avenue and 10th Avenue. Tickets may be purchased through Ticketweb, online at ticketweb.com or at the Highline Box Office from noon until doors close at (866) 468-7619.
