As dancers, we tell stories that have power: the stories that have shaped us, and stirred us, and spurred us to reach for the stars.
The hourglass tips, the world glimmers,
and we, in our gossamer corners,
our dance studios,
the dark places in our souls,
the intense, crushing, bitter, glorious, sparkling furnaces of our lives,
are building the next story:
"Stand beside me, Athena, fire me with daring, fierce as the day we ripped Troy's glittering crown of towers down"
Beautifully Haunted is a theatrical gothic bellydance and burlesque event produced by the Sisters of Ishtar Theatrical Dance Troupe, in partnership with dancers and artists from regional and metro WA and the Eastern States.
Beautifully Haunted embraces goth, vintage, steampunk and alternative subcultures to allow performers to explore the inner darkness of being human - the shadowy sides of the soul that are rarely given expression.
