The Chorus (currently 24 costumes) perform the bulk of the choreography, which is learnt in a series of rehearsals in teh preceding weeks – evenings and weekends, to be agreed – ideally totalling around 35-40 hours.

The Mass (60 costumes) punctuate the performance, in large formations which sweep across the space.  This group can learn their choreography in a 2-3 hour session and full run through on the day before the first performance, and final rehearsal on the day of performance(s).
