Umbra - Shadow Dance
Dancers manipulate light with their bodies, casting shadows on a screen to create silhouetted images that tell an engaging story. Wildfire Entertainment is the first performance company in Singapore to offer this unique dance form and continues to be the industry leader in Shadow Dance performance quality. Trademarked "Umbra," our performers are the most experienced Shadow Dance artists in Singapore.
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 favourite in Singapore and overseas. 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 that 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 (eg Merlion=Singapore, KLCC=Malaysia etc).
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.
CNY in Singapore
Commissioned for Singapore Chinatown's official Chinese New Year Ceremony for the SG50 year. This Shadow Dance performance was enjoyed by Singapore's Prime Minister and other VIPs.
Perfect for any Chinese New Year Event this Shadow Dance routine shows the the sights and sounds of Singapore’s Chinatown. From coolies unloading a boat to a hawker uncle frying noodles in a wok, the shadow dancers use their bodies to create unique shapes and tell a fascinating story. This routine is perfect for CNY but can be adapted to show a little Singaporean history and culture to international guests.

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!
