In Sketches of Flames, Bridget L. Moore fuses flamenco influences with her African-American and contemporary aesthetic to create a rapturous ensemble dance. Set to a series of passionate folk songs and drawing upon the writings of Federico García Lorca and others, each section of this eight-part work depicts a different facet of the joys and sorrows of love.

“The choreography had an essence of a Flamenco feel to it between the hand and arm movements, and a hint of Tango with its sensual aroma. Very well done by both the choreographer and the dancers. It was just stunning to watch. I couldn’t take my eyes off the stage.”
