Welcome to Wollongong’s Home of the Performing Arts

Dance of the Flames

Sun 9 Oct

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 choreographed pyrotechnics (LED).

In an instant the flames flare. In the next breath, they’re tender and warm – performing dances, songs and beats from far away and long ago. 

Fusing original compositions with traditional melodies gleaned from world music masters.  

Historical stories of love, loss, joy and suffering include Bulerias, Alegrias, Fandangos, Guajira, Colombianas, Rumba and Tangos. The retelling of neglected tales reveals parallels in our modern world.  

All-female composers, performance artists and live musicians with connections to the Illawarra.
