Description

"Lawr i’r Mor/Down to the Sea" - A dance and music performance
Castell 03 Arts Festival in Caernarfon, North Wales

Dance Artist Rosalind Holgate Smith and musician/composer Caro C have come together to create an immersive performance promenade, that explores relationships between the people of Caernarfon, the castle and the sea. The work features voices of local residents and is inspired by the quote “Yma wyf finna i fod”,“I am where I am supposed to be”, which can be found inscribed in slate on Caernarfon promenade.

The audience are invited to meet in the upper Castle courtyard, where the performance will begin. From here they will be guided down to the sea by the live journey of two dancers and an atmospheric soundtrack, listened to on headphones, creating an intimate experience.

Start time: 2pm and 4pm

Duration: 20-25mins approx.

Audience capacity is limited to 15 people per performance.
