HUNAB KU


Hunab Ku is the name of a show presented by Tribal Fire Dance Theater. It is a gathering of the Apache, Toltec, Mayan, and Aztec tribes in the heart of the jungle performing ceremonies to honor the divine power and forces of nature. The performers present a theatrical artistic expression of the ceremonial way of life honoring the elements and ancestral ways of the sun.

The dancers actually play the drums as they dance.The choreography varies depending on the theme of the piece. Although the dance and acrobatic movement if focused around the drum, there are other numbers that consist of ceremonial style dance and music. Each of the four elements are represented throughout the show.
