Chelsea Hotel Rehearsals


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.
