Most Hawaii residents are familiar with Polynesian fire knife dancing, but this group of artists is pushing fire dancing into new territory. (Pictured, from left to right: Laura Shiels, Simone Derow and Dan Amato.) Shiels, one of the main organizers of The Hawaii Fire Dancers, says, “We draw from a lot of traditions—the Maori poi, circus juggling—but we also craft our own tools and choreography and try to be as creative as possible.” The group comes together this month for its largest performance of the year, at the January 29 Chinese New Year Celebration, 8 p.m. at the Smith Street stage.
