Harvey blokes will be challenged to break down stereotypes and explore ideas of vulnerability, strength, fear and beauty when a unique dance show makes its way to the South West stage tomorrow. The statewide tour of The Beauty Index — a powerful contemporary performance that was launched in Denmark in 2017 — will reach its crescendo in town tomorrow night, when amateur and professional dancers unite on stage. The show will see 10 male Harvey residents in the spotlight after training with an experienced dancer for one week in a bid to have the cast and audiences thinking about gender roles and stereotypes. Denmark-based choreographer Annette Carmichael said the project would bring together many different men to share a meaningful, self expressive experience. “What happens over the course of the project is that they become really good friends, they’re doing something wild, crazy, completely different from anything they’ve done before,” she said. Ms Carmichael said a lot of the men involved sign up to prove to their sons that they could do or be anything. “Masculinity becomes more than just working or bringing home the bacon, it becomes a way to show that men can enjoy music, dancing and self-expression,” she said. Harvey Shire corporate services director Dean Winter said he had thrown his hat in the ring for the performance because his son was passionate about theatre and dance. “Guys that you'd cross in the street and go ‘whatever’ — now all of a sudden we’re mates,” he said. The performance will take place tomorrow at the Harvey Recreation and Cultural Centre.
