Like most other dances in Bali, The Kecak tells the tales of the ancient Hindu script, The Ramayana.
After the actual Kecak is finished, the fire dance begins. A man in a trance wearing a sort of horse costume walks on burning coconut embers with his bare feet until a priest is called in to throw holy water on him and bring him out of the trance. You may make donations if you wish to the fire dancer on your way out. He is always friendly and happy to have your donation.
Tip* Take lots of pictures of this. You won’t see anything like this in the West!
Not to be missed!
