Flam Chen

Many think of this ever-evolving and internationally acclaimed pyrotechnic troupe as being synonymous with fire-dancing. But the truth is that Flam Chen is a remarkable performance ensemble that just happens to express its art through fire. As performers, they are mythological storytellers, intricately weaving together complex sets of images. Many associate them with the annual All Souls Procession, an event Flam Chen is intimately involved with in terms of the planning, staging and execution. Their elaborate grand finale at the event is perhaps the highlight of the troupe's season. In recent years, the group has been inviting other performance artists into its act as a way of expanding its own vision and creative muse.
