Rosemary Lee  

First Light Festival
Lowestoft
UK

Each hour, on the hour from 1pm on Saturday until midday on Sunday. The performance will take place on the shoreline of Lowestoft's South Beach.

From one afternoon to the next, one of 24 dancers ranging from 10-70+ years perform a short solo on the hour every hour. Set against a landscape of changing skies, sea and light each performance will be accompanied with a song performed live by singer/ composer Isaac Lee-Kronick. Beginning with the youngest and ending with the eldest, each dancer will bring their unique quality to this repeating, ritualistic performance.

One of the UK's most respected choreographers, Rosemary Lee was born and grew up in Lowestoft and spent much of her childhood on the South Beach. Over the last 30 years she has created large-scale site-specific and solo works, video installations and short films. Regardless of their scale, these projects have an intimate quality and often explore our relationship with our environment.
