OUR STORY

LUNAR FIRE performances range from a full band of live electronic and world class musicians accompanying a large versatile theatrical dance troupe to a live PA set featuring luminescent dance theatre with optional fire spinning, aerial acrobatics & visionary video projections. Known for building a symbiotic interactive relationship with the audience, Lunar Fire has grown a dedicated following throughout a wide scope of communities and age groups. In every distinct version of the LUNAR FIRE spectacle, talented storytellers invite the audience to join their characters on a Hero’s journey of soul searching struggle through the challenges and triumphs of transformation.

“A surreal, spiritual and profound experience.” Denver Westword

Lunar Fire formed in 2002 on shores of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala, when the infamous rhythm section & dance troupe of legendary tribal rock band Kan’Nal performed a transformational Fire Show under a Full Moon in the heart of el Mundo Maya. Gracias a La Paz, San Marcos la Laguna y los Kaqchikel. Lunar Fire theatrical storylines and dance choreography grew to feature talented aerialists, acrobats, fire spinners, modern dance & traditional dance forms passed down by cultures from around the world. Inspired by personal voyages, Lunar Fire pays homage through dance and music to our ancestors and future generations of urban and ethnic cultures universally to activate a new paradigm. Dreaming the Future!
