Fire of Anatolia

A synthesis of hundreds of folkdance figures and music from different regions, Fire of Anatolia is a unique project whose source is Anatolia’s ancient mythological and cultural history. Produced by Mustafa Erdogan, the group hopes to introduce the world to the fire that arises from the ancient mosaic of love, cultural history and peace in Anatolia. The Fire of Anatolia, which is regarded as one of the best dance groups of the world because of countless international tours and various promotional activities, has taken great leaps in realizing this goal. In 1999, Mustafa Erdogan took his first steps towards making his long held dream become a reality. He started to work intensively on the project, which was then known as the “Sultans of the Dance”. Audition announcements were placed in the newspapers. 90 talented young dancers were selected out of 750 applicants, who began dancing immediately. This first period, full of hard work and constant re-choreography, lasted for about one and a half years, and dancers worked between 8 and 16 hours a day. The resulting Fire of Anatolia has been well worth the efforts, having achieved world wide acclaim and become a famous export of the modern Turkish Arts culture.
