The Beauty Index is a dance performance by men from the town of Denmark
and men from your community. It explores ideas of vulnerability, strength, terror and beauty. From fast paced fierce dancing to slow, contemplative rituals see ordinary men doing extraordinary things as they constantly seek to balance the elements of their world.
We take 5 – 10 men from your community and train them over one week to perform with 5 members from the original cast. This work challenges stereotypes about men and offers a transformational experience for community members. Research attached to the original project provides evidence that this project encourages creative expression, design-thinking and social connection.
Critically acclaimed, this dance work was first presented in a derelict mill site in Denmark, 2017, it was remounted in a proscenium arch at Albany Entertainment Centre in 2018.
Shortlisted for a 2018 Australian Dance Award.
