Passage landscape navigation

"Passage is a 38 minute work with live performance and a backdrop of three huge screens, back projected with film
featuring portraits of the cast and expansive landscapes. Made with the cast of 13 dancers of all ages in weekly
workshops over a period of more than 6 months, Passage gave its name to an evening of work. The programme
began with screenings of Infanta (1998) and boy (1995) followed immediately by Brink (2001) with Passage in the
second half. Passage was commissioned by The Royal Festival Hall with support from Arts Council of England,
London Arts, Swindon Dance, ResCen and DanceEast Artist Residency Programme." R. L.
