A dual world-record holding dance troupe ‘Fire of Anatolia’ gives its first ever performance in Dubai. The performance takes place during the ‘Eid in Dubai’ festival from the 1st to the 3rd of September, celebrating the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
The world-renowned Turkish dance group ‘Fire of Anatolia’ performs in Dubai from September 1st to 3rd, during Eid celebrations that mark the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
[Saniye Sinem Gliven, Performer “Fire of Anatolia”]:
“Here in Dubai you have Arabic culture and it’s similar to our culture. So particularly in our belly dance part of the show, the audience response was great!”
The multiple award-winning dance group holds two Guinness world records. One is for fastest dance performance, reaching a stunning 241 steps per minute.
The other is for the largest audience ever at a dance show – 400 thousand people watched them perform in Eregli, Turkey.
The performing arts group tours globally and reaches diverse audiences.
[Perit Kuban Yengatoral, Performer “Fire of Anatolia”]:
“When we performed in Germany at Olimpiale, there were 25 thousand people in the audience, and the applause -- which we call “foot applause” -- made me feel fantastic. It was like a gust of wind in my sails.”
At 120 members, Fire of Anatolia is also one of three biggest dance troupes in the world.
With over 3500 performances in 275 cities across 85 countries to their credit, the Anatolia dancers are certainly a busy lot.
Fire of Anatolia draws on the ancient mythological and cultural history of the Anatolia region, now a part of Turkey.
The ‘Eid in Dubai’ festival is the first time Fire of Anatolia will have performed in Dubai.
The show runs from September 1st to 3rd at the Sheikh Rashid Hall at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
