"Seductive and charming, The Three Belles transport the audience into a dreamlike world of period charm and frivolity. Through a whirlwind of dance and movement, they transcend past, present and future as they enchant admirers. This street spectacle is choreographed by Strange Fruit’s Creative Director Phillip Gleeson with Senior Artist Sally Smith.http://www.strangefruit.net.au/repertoire/thethreebelles/
