Returning from the R&D period in Sept/Oct 2014, we have our 5 Earthfall Dancers:

They are joined by previous Earthfall dancers

We are also delighted to welcome back

  • Rachael O’Neill who worked with us as an apprentice for the R&D and now returns as a professional Earthfall dancer.

Week 1 has been an intense period for the dancers, and team.  This is the largest production Earthfall have worked on and the piece is a new style of performing with the dancers moving fast and close around audience who are in the space with them

Great to be back in rehearsals and we can’t wait to tour Wales in May. See full tour dates and book tickets here.

Earthfall Apprenticeship

And last, but by no means least, we would like to introduce you to Sara McQueen.

Here’s a little bit about her in her own words:

“I have been dancing from year dot, beginning with tap, modern and ballet, and then in my early teenage years having some incredible tuition and mentorship during five years under the CAT scheme at Swindon Dance. After completing English, Maths and History at A-level, I took a two year dance Foundation course at Liberatus School of Performing Arts, focusing more on musical theatre and commercial styles, before enrolling in the degree course at Northern School of Contemporary Dance, from which I have just graduated with a First class degree.

I am so excited to be involved with Earthfall Dance, where the physicality and multi-faceted arts appeal to both my previous experiences, and the ways in which I aspire to develop as an artist. As a new graduate, this is an amazing opportunity to be involved in the early stages of development of new work, and to learn from the highly experienced and talented members of the company.”

This R&D period has been an opportunity for her to work with the Earthfall company and to input creatively throughout the process.
