Shallal Shared residency at AMATA, Falmouth University exporing music and dance improvisation and performance, including Shallal Studio artists and visitors responding to dancers in the space especially on the first 2 days, Portmeor Studios for 3 months and Shallal 2's show at the end along with Open Studios in St Ives festival,
and then treat of treats, the Arts Council funded us yet again - Thank you! - and we took all we had learnt, more that we wanted to explore and had the joy of Cross Currents in November at Back Lane West combining Shallal Dance Theatre artists with Shallal Studios and guests, in our cross art form residency.
Ooh i love residencies, process, play, the unexpected gifts and discoveries when artists get together, so much can happen!!
So many possibilities brewing from it all now and which will land in the new year?.....
Happy Christmas and New Year from all at Shallal and we leave you with comments by Jane from Back Lane West.
"What especially brilliant Shallal events this year! I know we missed a lot of people on the second event, but everyone I spoke to was really excited with the enjoyment of the whole experience. I love your generously collaborative model that seems to work for all involved!"
Enjoyment and generousity are what Shallal artists often bring to the mix, it creates real excitement and we are very grateful for it. It keeps us all coming back for more!
See you in the New Year!
