Dance of the Flames

Cultural Treasures of Australia

VENUE: City Diggers Owen room 82 Church street Wollongong

DATE: 23rd Nov 2023 at 7 pm


The Dance of the Flames draws together the power of flamenco, the allure of belly dance, the flair of shadow theatre, and the thrill of flamboyant pyrotechnics. In an instant, the flames flare. In the next breath, they’re tender and warm – performing dances, refrains, and beats from far away and long ago.

Fusing original compositions with traditional melodies gleaned from world music masters. Historical songs of love, loss, joy, and suffering include Bulerias, Alegrias, Fandangos, Guajira, Colombianas, Rumba, and Tangos. This retelling of neglected tales reveals parallels in our modern world. Featuring female composers, performance artists, and live musicians of the Illawarra.

ADVERSE WEATHER RELOCATION – Due to the unpleasant weather forecast we will be performing in at City Diggers. We are looking forward to seeing your beaming faces!!!
