Don't expect the West End or Broadway, this is a local dance show and firepit walk produced by locals who are clearly very proud of their culture and the origins of this dance. It is relatively short in duration which is welcome, funny and entertaining in parts. An interesting window into Sri Lankan culture. Firepit walk is impressive.

Worth going if you've got time on your hands.

The show is enjoyable and an interesting experience of Sri Lankan culture. Make sure you go earlier to get tickets and book seats. The seat booking is rather unusual as you write your name on a card and simply put it on a your selected chairs. The snacks sold in the theatre are rather pricey. I wouldn't say the show is an absolute must but if you have time to spare and you're interested in dance, music and a bit of acrobatics then give it a go.

Many tour guides will book seats for their guest, so if you have a guide, do get him to do the same, as the performance is free seating. Story line of each dance is given out in multiple language but the actual performance did not follow the order, making the audience confused.

Just before the end, there is a fire walking performance just in front of the stage. audience are encourage to sit on the stage to see it. You have to be quick, if not you will be left at the back and have difficulties seeing the final performance.

The danceshow, which should contain all sorrs of traditional dances appeared to be more like a highschool performance. Where a random guy with a mask spent 10 minutes saying booh to the audience. And a guy who was able to make backflips went bzerk on making backflips... where was the tradition?

To top it off we found out that our tickets (bought at the entrance) where 1000 instead of the supposed 500 rupies... We didn’t experience this kind of rip off before in sri lanka...
