Rehearsals for Chelsea Hotel started on the 11th March at Wales Millennium Centre. With the regular crowd of Lara Ward, Rosalind Brooks and Sebastian Languenuer back and ready to go, it was an exhausting but exciting welcome week for new dancer Alex Marshall Parsons.
After two weeks at WMC the company moved up to the Sherman Cymru studio space. This is the first show in which sound technician Felix Otaola has performed as a musician, though performing is nothing new to Felix who plays guitar and sings in several bands.
The next few weeks will see the piece really take shape as the musicians and dancers work together to create some of the stories from theChelsea Hotel’s illustrious past.
On the 10th and 17th of April 2013 Earthfall Dance held two free Professional Development classes at Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff. The tutors Included Cêt Haf, Murilo Leite D’ Imerio and Sarah Rogers. Murilo and Cêt started off these classes on the 10th, then Cêt and Sarah taught the class on the 17th.
These classes helped to develop movement skills and were open to people from a variety of dance backgrounds and with a range of experience.
These workshops were made available with the support of Chapter Arts Centre and the Arts Council of Wales and were suitable for those who have an interest in exploring new ideas, methods and styles, as well as an interest in developing their physical, creative and choreographic skills.
The workshop explored Earthfall’s unique movement style through contact work, improvisation, partner work and creative studies. They enable the participants to explore their own creativity within the context of Earthfall’s repertoire and methodologies.
These workshops are inspired by the movement material from Chelsea Hotel the latest Earthfall production. Unfortunately the Professional Development classes are no longer running at this present time, however we hope to set up some future classes during the Chelsea Hotel run.
