Choreographer Rosemary Lee is looking for women to perform in a new outdoor dance-work created for Par Beach. She is looking for women over the age of 21 who have some movement or dance background and would relish the opportunity to work outdoors in all weather on a performance that requires concentration, poise and stamina. ‘Passage for Par’ will be presented as part of the Groundwork season of international contemporary art across Cornwall in 2018 and has been commissioned by Groundwork and Dance Republic 2.

Par beach, near St Austell, is an expansive sandy beach flanked on one side by the green fields of the Gribbin headland and on the other by the industrial landscape of the man-made port and buildings relating to the china clay industry.

Rosemary Lee is a choreographer who has created a range of work over the last 30 years, from large-scale site-specific works and solo works to video installations and short films. Regardless of their scale, these projects have an intimate quality and often explore our relationship with our environment.
