Let go of all familiarity and climb into a world of fantasy, alchemy, dreams & archetypes with LUNAR FIRE. Lunar Fire storytellers weave electronic-based world music with theatrical aerial acrobatics, fire spinning, choreographed stage dancers and visionary visuals to create New Myths for Modern Tribes.
Lunar Fire formed in 2002 beside the volcanoes of Lake Atitlan in the Mayan heartland of Guatemala, when legendary rhythm section & dance troupe of tribal rock band Kan’Nal expanded mythic storylines into fully choreographed dance theatre. Growing into a festival favorite with a dedicated following, Lunar Fire tours internationally with a home base in Colorado.
Live shows transform into dreamscapes of new worlds populated by mythic spirit animals, primordial creatures and supernatural mystic star beings. “Dreamspells” cast by aerialists in the heavens capture the heart of the Earth Tribes on drums and flutes. “Ancient Guides” use ritual dance to teach a warrior on spirit quest the transformative power of death and rebirth.
Lunar Fire fills the stage and sometimes the audience with actors, aerialists, acrobats, stilt walkers, fire spinners, elaborately costumed characters as well as interactive video projections. Urban & ethnic world dancers bring to Lunar Fire performances a taste of many cultures from Latin Salsa, Brazilian Zouk, Hip Hop, and Traditional African to Temple, Belly, Modern and Lyrical dance.
Lunar Fire studio albums “Ancient Guides” and “Dreamspell” blend electronic dance music, acoustic world instrumentation, trip-hop, tribal drums and chants, pre Columbian Native flutes, Latin, glitch, dub, soaring vocals, a unique mix of Spanish-English rap and uplifting lyrics meant to inspire and unite all ages and tribes.
