Curatorially speaking, Usually Beauty Fails captures the contemporary exploration of dance, theatre and music working side-by-side. With this show these disciplines intersect, collide, almost seemingly inside of one another. Most interestingly, how each art form provokes the other, inspiring new expression and storytelling – always in search of the cause and the calm behind the chaos.

Similarly, that pretty much sums up the wonderful synergies of collaboration when distinct presenters like DanceHouse, SFUW come together with PuSh to explore each others audiences and their expectations. May they bump, grind and dance their way to rediscovering beauty in what they see before them – however it presents itself.  Catch it before it disappears.
