LATINOPIA TEATRO NAHUI OLLIN “FIRE DANCE”

In the cosmology of the Aztecs, the sun was known as Tonatiuh. The Aztecs believed that every 52 years, the sun expired only to be reborn again and replenish life with a new era of prosperity. The Aztec “Fire Dance” celebrates this renewal of life with a symbolic sacrifice of the principal dancer to the sun’s flames, here performed by master Aztec dancer Jaime Ayala and the Nahua Ollin dance company
