BEAUTY OF THE BEAST
The Guardian ★★★★, The List Magazine ★★★★, Herald Scotland ★★★★
Rage Against The Machine, athleticism, beauty and Bach. Company Chameleon’s unforgettable and critically acclaimed dance piece, offers a funny, moving and subversive look at male group dynamics.
Following a gang of friends through a range of scenarios, Beauty Of The Beast peels back and uncovers the many faces of masculinity: strength, vulnerability, camaraderie and hostility, and explores what happens when affiliation becomes identity. Laugh out loud funny in parts, dark and menacing in others, this tightly packed piece holds a mirror to our times, and is both emotional and thought provoking.
