Daily Helping for October 28th, 2020 – Kuma Films – Firebending

A photo still from a video from Kuma Films of a fire dancer.

I sometimes wonder how different art forms first began. For example, who was the first person to look at fire and think, “I can dance with that!” Whoever it was, I’m glad they did, because now we have incredible artists like Kuma Films. But before we go any further, I need to do the obligatory disclaimer. Do not try this at home. Fire may be pretty, but it is also very dangerous.

Now that that’s out of the way, can we go back to how beautiful this video is? There is something wonderfully mesmerizing about watching fire being transformed into art in this way. The way it cuts through the air, leaving behind a lingering trail of light. It’s almost hypnotic, especially when combined with the music. I particularly love the moments where there’s more than one performer in the shot. There’s something extra beautiful about the synchronizations of the fire paths.

I wish I could say I would one day be brave enough to try something like this, but I’m positive I would just end up burning myself. A lot. I mean, the move at 1:53? I would 100% set myself on fire if I ever tried something like that. It looks amazing, but I’m happy to just watch. There’s no need to set my apartment on fire.

Suggestions for artists I should check out? Please contact me with your ideas. I hope you enjoyed your daily helping of art!
