Firedancers to Perform at the Flowing Flame of Sirrion
by Trampas Whiteman, Staff Writer
Palanthas – Terris Laevon, a cleric at the temple of Sirrion, announced yesterday that the Firedancers of Sirrion, a troupe of performers specialized in fire, will be performing at the Temple of Sirrion next Bakukal at sundown. This event will take place as part of the celebrations going on in the temple following a renaming of the holy site, which will henceforth be called the Flowing Flame of Sirrion.
"My fellow priests and I felt that the clergy of the Healing Hand made a wise decision when they renamed their temple," said Laevon. "We live in a time of change and a time of mortals, and we feel that renaming our holy temple will serve to show people that this is a place where they can find spiritual guidance and clarity and not a place for petty sacrifices and formal ceremonies."
"Even if you're not a follower of Sirrion, the show will be a sight to see," Laevon commented. "The Firedancers are fantastic performers. Their dances are not only beautiful, they also evoke a sense of story and passion."
The Firedancers are scheduled to introduce a new performance, the Passion of Alak-Khan. According to Laevon, Alak-Khan was an ancient khan of Khur who committed adultery with a teenage girl, who bore him a son. Alak-Khan was said to have murdered his wife, who had bore him no children, in order to marry the young woman.
Though city officials have raised some safety concerns, the temple of Sirrion has alleviated all fears.
