Out of Chaos comes Beauty is a world of original song, dance and projections. A place where stories are told and dreams find home.

The project comprises original performance, devised and performed by a team of 9 regional Australian artists, and inspired by contemporary Australian cultural influences, place and relationships. Out of Chaos comes Beauty conflates the elements of music born of the outback, text that situates and questions relationships of people to land and each other, dance that physicalizes the themes the songs interrogate, and visual art that challenges, disrupts and celebrates the emergence of beauty as a cyclical and seasonal response to chaos. Out of Chaos comes Beauty’s compelling narrative provokes and comments on the fragility of life, its humour and intrinsic beauty. 


The performance/touring team comprises Vocalist, Saxophonist, Dancer, Visual artist, String Quartet and technical director/stage manager.

“This is a compelling narrative where art forms combine to comment on the fragility of life, its humour and intrinsic beauty.” (Peter J Adams Devisor / Director: Sir David Attenborough, Professor Brian Cox, Michael Palin, Louis Theroux)

“This program was absolutely fantastic and if there were tickets for sale now I’d be buying one straight away for tomorrow night’s performance and the next one and telling anyone I could” - Roderick (audience member)
