  • Participants: 150 – 5,555!

 

 

Having been present at a Kecak Fire Dance at a Balinese Temple whilst backpacking 25 years ago in 1995, this was a phenomenal communal experience about religion, ritual, ceremony, dance and art! It has stayed with me since! Here’s the Wikipedia link for some history and research, but also a link to one of the many videos you can find on YouTube to inspire even more research… enjoy! The story is based on an aspect of the Hindi epic of ‘The Ramayana’.
