If you have been dancing for a while you’re sure to have heard of one of the most prolific west coast crews, Circle of Fire. Known for their fusion of breaking and house, Circle of Fire has been pushing the boundaries of free expression in breaking for nearly two decades; a yin to the yang of traditionalism and structure. Mason Rose spent some time with the crew and today we present a look into the soul cypher with Circle of Fire as they get down in the bay. Check it out below!
An excerpt from the mind of Mason Rose:
“Forged in the fires of trial and triumph a person’s soul is ultimately expressed through art, through culture… through sound and movement.
What is soul? Soul is not something you have but rather something you can become.
No place is this more evident than in the dance community. The dancers do not simply express their souls, but rather for those brief moments in the ever-sacred cypher… the dancers ARE their souls; uncovered and true for all to see.
And like all truth, Soul has a certain ring to it. And like all rings they bring us full circle.
What is soul? Step into the Circle of Fire and find out.
