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.

Female composers, performance artists, and live musicians with connections to the Illawarra.
