Papua New Guinea's Firedance Festival
The Firedance Festival is a special showcase of Baining culture in the East New Britain Province, deep in the mountains. Here you are welcomed with rare performances capturing Baining tribal myth and lore. Tribes from all over Baining will be a part of this rousing event. As night descends, towering bonfires will be lit for one of the most spectacular dances ever witnessed in Papua New Guinea, where initiated Baining men wearing extraordinary masks and enchanted by forest spirits dance evocatively through the flames and embers.
