‘‘The Beauty Thief” is a funny, thought-provoking play, created by
thespians of differing ability
Devised by the cast, The Beauty Thief is a reflection on the idea of beauty, and its relationship to worth and power. In the form of a traditional fairy tale, the story unfolds using minimal dialogue, relying on movement and music to tell the tale, with dance sequences performed by the CDTeens from Canberra Dance Theatre. The Beauty Thief is funny, moving and thought-provoking.
All dialogue in the play was also projected on a screen, so the performance could be appreciated by people who are hard of hearing or deaf.
