Thank you to everybody who attended a performance in Birmingham, and a special thanks to the Front of House and technical staff. We hope Sam, who was on work experience, enjoyed his time at mac and gained an insight into how a touring dance company operates. It was a great way to end the autumn tour, with the park outside mac looking wonderfully autumnal – a perfect setting for Bonfire Night.
The post show talk was our busiest of our tour; it’s always special to hear our Artistic Directors talk about their creative process. We love talking to people about our work, if you couldn’t make our post show talks but have questions please let us know using the #EFstories hashtag, and keep your eyes peeled for answers on Facebook and Twitter.
Take a look at the photo gallery of our time in Birmingham below:
Earthfall are to run a two day intensive on the 19th & 20th November, which will take place at Ballet Cymru as part of the Cardiff Dance Festival programme. The intensive is targeted to both dance, physical theatre and music practitioners, professionals and final year/ recent graduate students. The sessions will be led by Joint Artistic Director Jessica Cohen, with a selection of Earthfall’s exceptionally talented performers.
This brilliant professional development opportunity is suitable for those with an interest in exploring the relationship between movement and live music through a devising process, and in developing individual physical, creative and choreographic skills. This is the chance to take knowledge and practical skills one step further and it is absolutely FREE.
“I was lucky enough to attend Earthfall’s Professional Classes and found them to be not just great fun, but incredibly useful in developing my own skills and techniques as a dancer. I can’t wait to get involved again.” Cêt Haf, Freelance Dancer.
This will be an amazing opportunity for dancers and musicians from across Wales and further afield to come together to develop their professional training under the guidance of Earthfall’s expertise.
This opportunity has been made possible with the support of Ballet Cymru who are also nurturing the creative development of dancers in Wales through the Ballet Cymru Associate, residency and intensive programmes.

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.
