When a dream of peace blends with performance, angels will dance.
"Peace Angels - First Steps" is about the creation of a ceremonial event held in Sydney on 25 September 2011, as part of a week of celebrations for the International Day of Peace on September 21.
It was touch and go if the event would go on "rain or shine". The story of the intense rehearsal process and the personal development leading up to the event is led by the artistic director, Antoinette Sampson. The dramatic climax in Hyde Park features numerous speakers and singers, as well as the Peace Angels in illuminated costumes performing sacred ritual dances. Counterpoint to the wars and economic stress of life today, this program aims to lift audiences' hearts, and offer messages of peace, hope and joy. Original music by Max Lambert is highlighted in the event, along with live multicultural songs and the ambient music of Japetus.
Produced by Tim Maddocks. Directed by Michael Ney.
