‘Passage for Par’ is a dance performance created specially for and presented on Par Beach, conceived and directed by choreographer Rosemary Lee.
At the turn of the tide 30 women will rhythmically snake their way across the tidal landscape, tracing meandering pathways through the wet sand, their outlines etched against the sea and sky. Following their movements from afar on headland or dune, viewers are invited to take time to discover the ever-changing landscape as the women slowly continue their passage through it.
‘Passage for Par’ will begin at approximately the following times:
– Friday 22 June 7.15pm
– Saturday 23 June 8.15pm
– Sunday 24 June 9.15am
Each passage lasts for somewhere between 90 minutes and 2 hours. Come to Par Beach to witness either the full duration or part of the performers’ journey. The three live performances over three days are free to attend and no booking is required.
