Umbra - Shadow Dance
Dancers manipulate light with their bodies, casting shadows on a screen to create silhouetted images that tell an engaging story. Trademarked 'Umbra,' Wildfire Entertainment is the first corporate entertainment company in Australia to offer this unique dance form.
Shadow Dance is the perfect event performance for telling the story of a company or brand, highlighting achievements, or simply entertaining event guests.
Around the World
Our very first Shadow Dance Performance continues to be a corporate event favourite. Around the World tells the story of a young man longing to travel and explore the world. Despite falling in love this longing must be fulfilled. But, after some time along an incredible journey around the planet, he realises that the greatest treasure the world has to offer is the love he left behind. Alack his love has moved on.... will he find true love again?
This routine can be customised with a unique "home base" location for the final scene.
Journey to the Top
This Shadow Dance Performance was first created for Singtel and serves as a metaphor for the hard work and perseverance to overcome all obstacles that enables anyone to reach great heights.
Stifled at by the never-ending dullness of his soulless desk job, a young adventurer sets off on a whirlwind journey where he encounters a series of obstacles that try to keep him from his goal. Animals, weather, and even a street fighter try to impede him on his quest. But the man prevails, and ultimately stakes his flag on the mountaintop.
This routine can be customised to include your own logo at the end.

Partially Customised Routine
Let our Creative Team take your theme and adapt an existing routine to suit your budget! If our existing Shadow Dances aren't quite what you're looking for, let us adapt them for you slightly. By reusing the basic shapes explored in other routines, we can create a brand-new storyline at an affordable price!
Duration - 3-5 minutes
Number of Performers - 6-10
If you check our Technical Rider and realise that your event doesn't have the space to support a live Umbra performance, we are able to produce a film version of a customised Shadow Dance to play at your event. We can even have the performers attend and come out from behind the curtain at the end of the video--many in your audience may not even realise that the performance isn't live!
