The Stars Descend: The Stars Descend story unfolds over five regional locations from 17 March – 1 April, 2023 and is a vast trail of contemporary dance performances, aimed at transforming how people see and care for our country. Inspired by eco-restoration efforts across the Gondwana Link, it will showcase the importance of climate action and restoring health to the land and convey hope to audiences.
Chapter 2 of The Stars Descend, is in Northcliffe located in Pibbulmun country on Sunday March 19th. The stars have travelled from Margaret River via tendrils of cool fire. In this performance, created by Australian dance legend, Chrissie Parrott AO, the stars appear inside the exquisite orchids that emerge after fire. A sensual feast, this chapter is underscored by the evocative sounds of musician Dave Mann and the fire inspired design of celebrated Northcliffe artist, Peter Hill.
Audiences must catch special buses to access the performance to be held on a private property. Buses depart Brockman Street, Pemberton at 2.15pm and Northcliffe Visitor Centre at 3pm. Performance commences at 4.15pm and is followed by a community celebration hosted by Southern Forest Arts Book your tickets here.
Performances will take place in spectacular outdoor settings to celebrate the rich biodiversity and ongoing restoration along the Gondwana Link’s 1000 kilometre ecological pathway.
