Performance

Rosemary Lee

Bath

Originally presented in two central London squares, Rosemary and her collaborators have brought together local performers from Bath to re-imagine Melt Down & Rising for two iconic locations in the heart of the city. From a cast of women passing fleetingly through The Circus to the quiet intensity of an all-male cast under the boughs of a fir tree in Royal Avenue. These green havens will be momentarily transformed, and leave lasting images imprinted in the mind of the spectators.

11am/1pm/3pm/5pm

MELTDOWN
