Kick Starting 2012

After an amazing 2011, and a lovely relaxing Christmas break the new year kicks off with some exciting projects and performances, which I can't wait to start working on.

This week I'll be working on Cscape's new children's show 'If the Shoe Fits' which is being directed by Simon Harvey (Kneehigh, o-region) and written by Anna-Maria Murphy (Kneehigh, BBC Radio 4). It's a developmental week with a scratch performance at The Acorn Theatre, Penzance on Saturday 6th at 2pm. The show is aimed at children aged 3-7yrs and their families.

Freefall Dance Classes start back this Monday, me and Grace are really looking forwards to a new year, a new set of classes and to start moving again after the break. We are running our Monday evening Open Level class as normal, and we have a NEW 'Body Con and Stretch' class on Thursday evenings. We'll also be running a series of Advanced Level workshops in Cornwall and Plymouth this term, which we'll be posting more information about soon.

'Ways Of Watching' - Winter Dance Symposium - University College Falmouth.
On January 26th we will be performing a scratch performance of 'Effete' as part of the one day event alongside other scratch performances and panel discussions exploring issues around how we watch dance. 'Effete' is a professional work in progress originally created as part of  The Development Project which took place last September. The piece is choreographed by myself in collaboration with dancers Robert Mennear and Grace Sellwood, with original music by Sophy Smith (Motionhouse, Assault Events).
