The Kecak Fire Dance – a unique theatrical performance of Ramayana

Share this post Kecak Dance, Uluwatu, , Bali, Indonesia | Chirag Virani | Hetal Virani

Bali trip would be incomplete without witnessing the iconic performance of Kecak Fire Dance. The dance is performed right before sunset at the amphitheatre located on the cliff-top at Uluwatu Temple. As a group of men sitting in a circle rhythmically sing “chak, chak, chak”, dancers go around the fire and perform different segments of Ramayana. A spectacular backdrop of sunset over the ocean combined with gentle breezes, soft orange rays, vibrant costumes, human vocals and a bright fire in the centre makes this dance a must see performance. The show starts at 6 pm so if you would like to get good seats, get there around 30 minutes before the show.
