As Stories from a Crowded Room approaches its last four performances, take a look back at our previous two venues:
All of the segments of Stories from a Crowded Room are semi-autobiographical, based on true stories from company members. By piecing together small snippets of a persons reality, Artistic Directors Jim Ennis and Jessica Cohen were able to create the fragmented narrative of the production. Sharing and exploring stories has always been an essential part of Earthfall’s devising process.
We believe that everyone has a story to tell. As part of the #EFsorry campaign, we want to hear the stories behind your ‘Sorry’s’. Why are you sorry that you’re not good enough? Why are you sorry that you feel insecure? Why are you sorry that you broke that promise?
Finish our apologies with your own stories and send them to us in your preferred medium using the hashtag #EFsorry.
We may not have been on tour this week, but we’ve definitely been busy with outreach and participation activities.
In University of Wales Trinity St David BA Dance first years explored partner and ensemble work with Seb and Jess. Cardiff Metropolitan University BA Dance first years had a workshop based on Stories from a Crowded Room with dancers Lara and Rachael, specifically exploring partner work, and how you can use Stories from a Crowded Room as a stimulus during the devising/choreographic process.
As a continuation of our #EFsorry campaign, Kelly and Cat ran a social media workshop at Cardiff Youth Cool Deaf Club, exploring how Earthfall use social media platforms to engage with audiences and within the performance. Have a look at one of our apology video below:
Finally we ran a Stories from a Crowded Room workshop with drama students from Christ College, Brecon. Students explored the devising process, and conducted a Q&A with company members, Alex and Rosalind. It was great to see all of the students and staff get so involved. Here are some photos from the workshop:
The second venue on our Autumn Tour took the Company to Pavilion Theatre in Worthing. It was great to be by the beach and our dancers enjoyed the opportunity for some seaside photoshoots. Have a look at our weekly video and photoshoot photo gallery.
