Shallal Cross Art form residency
Shallal have already enjoyed two residencies this year, Shallal Dance Theatre's Shallal Shared at AMATA, Falmouth University and Shallal Studios at Porthmeor Studios, with increased confidence, ideas and collaborations from these Shallal artists, performers and friends are keen to extend cross art form opportunities for their second Back Lane West residency challenging and extending their practice and audiences. Artists will work in blocks of time.
Potential new work includes: exploring music and sound improvisation and photographic approaches,creating a shadow puppet theatre, working with multi media, music, writing, and projection, photography/film, exploratory practice in collaborative painting and extending to large scale bamboo installation/performance, short pop up site specific performances in the surrounding area.
We aim to have one or two showings of work to connect with new audiences.
Artists involved so far include: Oliver Raymond Barker, Jamie Mills, George Bradley Peers, Melanie Young, Kerry Jackson, Anna Willis, Eddie Callis, Stewart Blackmore, Jo Lumber.
Shallal Studios is building a supportive network of artists, (emerging, established, returning) who are interested in inclusion, access to studio space, sharing skills, collaboration, marketing and promoting work. They wish to lift the glass ceiling often encountered by artists with additional needs and celebrate the joy of art in inclusive practice, their long term goal is an accessible inclusive arts studio for Cornwall.
Please contact creative director Jo Willis firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in being involved and to learn more.
Shallal has a legacy of openness to cross art form collaborations. Artists and performers gain confidence in their own creative processes and are inspired to try new ways of working in different media. Shallal supports the voice of each individual artist/performer, encouraging and stimulating collaborations with internal or external artists, sharing skills and approaches within embodied practice, building new relationships and taking new risks.
