Chorus 2020

Chapter 3 – The Beauty Index Trilogy

Watch Behind the ScenesWatch First day DenmarkWatch Show Highlights

A work of epic proportion, Chorus united community performers from the towns of Denmark, Albany, Ravensthorpe, Bunbury, Mandurah and Perth beneath the stars in a natural amphitheatre surrounded by Denmark’s tall forests. 

More than 150 women joined some of Australia’s leading dance artists for two extraordinary performances at Silverstream Wines in March 2020. 

Calling for an end to violence, Chorus follows the character of ‘Beauty’, a winged goddess who is broken and suffering. ‘Solaire’ a sun-goddess, sends forth the Chorus, a mass of women who bring knowledge, joy, persistence and pleasure to help Beauty recover. 

Danced by women aged 14 –70 years old, many of the women had little to no experience of dance but through months of training found a common language of movement and gesture. 

The performance featured original music by James Gentle performed live with soprano Bonnie Staude, violinist Jude Iddison and celloist Marie Limondin. 

Silverstream Wines released a sparkling Riesling in honour of Chorus.
