Using 2nd Curtain flash remotely

Seeking expert information

Using a 5D MkIV slr.

I have a 3* 580exII flashes and a Speedlite transmitter ST-E2. I also have radio control using either PocketWizard MiniTT1 with AC3 Zone Controller and FlexTT5 Transceiver OR a pair of PocketWizard Plus II Transceivers.

What I am trying to achieve is second curtain flash so that I can shoot fire dancers in the glow of the fire followed by a flash to illuminate the dancer.

Can some one advice whether it can be done at all as the manual implies 2nd curtain flash does not work with radio. I read that a long extension cord (33') will definitely do the job but I would prefer to use the radio controls or the st-e2.

Thanks.
