Chorus of Women

Filed under Directory Listing

Description of Services:

A Chorus of Women came into being when 150 women filled the Australian Parliament with the song “Lament” on 18 March 2003, the day Australia’s intention to invade Iraq was announced.

They have been singing ever since. Like the ancient Greek chorus on which they model themselves, they have commented on the events of our time.

Their presentations incorporate story, drama, dance and the visual arts to complement the songs. The material is original and responds to the issues that concern us – most recently climate change.

Based in Canberra, A Chorus of Women has taken productions to Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, and Bulgaria, and has participated in a number of local festivals.

Located In: Canberra

Servicing: Canberra and ACT Region

    I went to The Chorus of Women production “The Gifts of the Furies” in 2009 and it was great. They are having repeat performances of this production in September this year, so it’s worth going to if you haven’t already been.

    Chorus of Women also organise community conversations on other sustainability focussed issues from time to time.
