Chorus’ final call

By Ashleigh Fielding | posted on October 4, 2019

NEXT month marks the final opportunity Denmark women have to join local choreographer Annette Carmichael’s large-scale dance project Chorus.

This community dance project will bring together 200 women from across WA’s south in performances to be held at Silverstream Wines over the March long weekend next year.

Since June, scores of women in six communities have begun working with a team of dance artists.

“Chorus celebrates the strength and solidarity of women,” Ms Carmichael explained.

“It is inspired by the peace marches and group actions by women across the globe, calling for equality and demanding safety.”

Women are invited to join the last two groups in Denmark that commence rehearsals in October.

The Denmark ‘Gentle’ group will be performing alongside ex-WA Ballet dancer Holly Carter.

Together they will create dance that is gentle on the knees, with gestures and formation walking. Rehearsals start October 22 at the Denmark Civic Centre and will be held each Tuesday 12.30-2.30pm, with occasional Sundays.

On October 24, the Denmark ‘Active’ group begins their weekly rehearsals performing alongside US-trained dancer Sumer Addy.

This group is suitable for people who can run and get up and down off the floor quickly.

These rehearsals are held each Thursday 12.30-2.30pm, with occasional Sundays.

Women aged 14 years and over are welcome to participate in the project.

No prior dance experience is required.
