Ordha , Spirals Of Light, Luminescence
Ordha- Solo Fire Show
Dancing alchemy performance. Alive with enchanting movements and aesthetics, this multidisciplinary fire production is centered around an artistic interpretation of Scottish “Selkie” folklore and the Scottish Gaelic word “Ordha” meaning golden, shining like gold!
Fusing the hypnotic manipulation of 3 golden hula hoops with the fluid movements of Bellydance technicality and the powerful element of fire, “Ordha” invites audiences to connect with their imagination, honouring the sacred nature and patterns of geometry which exists within us, the natural world and the universe itself.
Prepare to be guided through an unforgettable journey of reflection, transformation and fire.
Selkie folklore depicts mythological creatures, resembling seals, who are often coerced into relationships with humans by someone hiding their seal-skin. The longing to return to their true nature becomes unbearable and the Selkie's reclaim their seal-skins, returning to the vastness of the ocean.
“Ordha” is an exploration of the themes present in this folklore including; longing, identity, transcendence, freedom of movement and the deep oceans of intuition and creativity that exist within us. The choreography aims to offer reflection on the symbolism, relevance and validity of such themes in our modern context.
