Flaming Popes

Brooklyn, NY

For all purposes, the first Madagascar event. The plan: A dramatic interpretation of the schism between the Eastern Orthodox and Roman Catholic churches in the 11th century, with drama, betrayal, and a whole lot of shit blowing up. The execution: Horrible delays followed by poorly aimed fireworks set to a boombox with faltering batteries in sub-zero weather on the Williamsburg waterfront. Now celebrated annually as the Coldest Day Ever.
