2016 Wales Theatre Awards

Uncategorized

Earthfall’s 2015 immersive touring production, Stories from a Crowded Room, was presented with the Best Dance Production Award at the 2016 Wales Theatre Awards.

Speaking after the awards ceremony in Cardiff, Jessica Cohen said: “The company took a risk presenting such a large-scale work, with ten performers on stage and live music, especially in the current climate.  Our audiences and critics provided amazingly positive feedback during the tour and I’m proud that we took the risk – after all, Arts Council of Wales subsidised companies are encouraged to be risk taking.”

Earthfall founders and joint Artistic Directors Jessica Cohen and Jim Ennis also received the Special Achievement Award.

Jim Ennis accepted the award, saying “Jess and I have been creative partners for over 25 years.  Thank you for this award and congratulations to all the nominees and all those performers, directors and creative individuals who just get up and do it despite this climate of adversity.”
