Chantry Dance: Beauty & the Beast

The Guardian of the Forest

Chantry Dance’s imaginative new show is inspired by the original folktale of La Belle et la Bête, re-imagined for a 21st century family audience.

Long ago, the vain Lord Bieth wanted to cut down the forest to expand his city. However, the Green Lady put a stop to his plan and, in a fitting punishment, turned him into a beast who is compelled to guard the forest against destruction by greedy city folk.

Years later, through the gift of a magical rose, Lord Bieth’s path crosses with the young maiden Áille. She is completely unlike the other self-absorbed city folk and her beautiful heart may just change the Beast’s life forever.

This engaging new show highlights the importance of preserving natural habitats and asks what is genuine beauty? We learn alongside the Beast that looks count for less than the beauty in your heart, and are encouraged not to base our judgements of someone’s worth on their outward appearance.

The show features contemporary dance, ballet and circus performed by an international cast including West End dancers and choreographers RAE PIPER & PAUL CHANTRY, and SHANNON PARKER of San Francisco Ballet, Northern Ballet Theatre and Britain’s Got Talent.
