On the 22nd, 23rd and 24th of June, performances of Rosemary Lee’s Passage for Par took place on Par Beach. Groundwork Volunteer Leah Boote attended Friday’s performance. Her sketches below capture the fluid movements of the dancers, and note some of the viewers’ reactions.
At the turn of the tide 30 women 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 take the time to discover the ever-changing landscape as the women slowly continue their passage through it.
