The Stars Descend self-drive tour: Northcliffe to Porongurup

The Stars Descend is a vast trail of dance performances about climate action and hope, unfolding over five regional locations from 17 March – 1 April, 2023.

Performances in spectacular outdoor settings will celebrate the rich biodiversity and ongoing restoration along the Gondwana Link’s 1000km ecological pathway.

Chapter 2 of The Stars Descend, is in Northcliffe located in Pibbulmun country. 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.

After the performance, travel through the stunning Southern Forests and Walpole Wilderness area, via Walpole, Denmark and Albany to reach the remarkable Porongurup Range.
