Latest update from First Light Festival
Dance until dawn and beyond!
There are a multitude of dance performances taking place at First Light; Set against the changing skies, light and sea of Lowestoft’s south beach, CIRCADIAN is an intimate dance performance specially created for First Light Festival by acclaimed choreographer Rosemary Lee.
On the hour, every hour, one of 24 dancers ranging in age from 8-80 years will perform a short solo accompanied by a song performed live by singer/ composer Isaac Lee-Kronick. Starting with the youngest and ending with the eldest 24 hours later, each dancer (all based in the Eastern region) will bring their own unique quality to this repeating, almost ritualistic performance.
One of the UK's most respected choreographers and directors, Rosemary Lee was born and grew up in Lowestoft and spent much of her childhood on the South Beach. She learned to dance at the Phyllis Adams School of Dance and both her father and grandfather were directors of the Lowestoft Fisheries Laboratories (now Cefas).
And if you happen to walk along Lowestoft's golden sands this week you may catch a sneak peek as rehearsals take place!
