Updates and feedback for Shallal 2 Mergecology

Shallal 2
Feedback for Shallal 2 from Mergecology 
"Thank you so much for performing in Mergecology last week. it was wonderful to have your dancers there and the performance was gorgeous!"
Suzie 
Spindrift dance collective

Shallal Dance Theatre
Lots of exciting possibilities coming up, including Jo and Demelza working with Get Changed Theatre company, in June, helping add dance component to the next stage of their Alice In Wonderland productions.

It includes the joy of working with experienced musician Philip Robinson. We often used to talk of working together and sharing practice, when he delivered the highly successful MAP ( Music Access Project ) project ( which we hope to relaunch in the future, as we now have lovely Stuart who could shadow him - so we get the skills in Cornwall.)

Doorways Visiting Artist
We hope to have Colin's friend Harry Theaker http://www.juncturedance.com/harry-theaker/
visit us again on the 6th May when we rehearse at Godolphin and look forward to his feedback. We are busy threading together the web of images, characters, history and colour Godolphin has inspired.
He came and helped and gave helpful feedback when we performed Contrasts at Falmouth Art Gallery, a few years ago.
It will be good to have someone else's eye on it and then we have 2 weeks to continue working on it before the performance.


Michael has nearly finished the poster..... and Victoria and i are sitting by our computers and phones tomorrow rather than meeting in person.

Shallal Studios 
news in that Hannah Whitlock from Outside In, Pallant House Gallery http://www.outsidein.org.uk/About_2014
might come down to... " meet with artists and help them create an online gallery page on the Outside In website"

Also really excited that we are working with Shallal Studio artist Sam While and his family to enable his first solo show at Helston Museum 4th - 16 July! with a private view involving Shallal 2 - we hope - date tbc. 
Many thanks to Tracey at the museum for her enthusiasm and support.

Express Yourself
Occasionally when Debs can't make it i have the pleasure of working again with Express Yourself, last week we collected comments and thoughts for future developments,

"Friendly group, like the way people interpret the music, so original, lovely atmosphere"  Laura

"It's not classed as ability or disability, it's do-able. 
People allowed to express themselves as they wish when they wish.
Everyones encouraged to join in.
Encouragement given by the group for the group helps people." Leslie

"Love Art and Love Dancing, love coming here feels like a family" Esme

"Fun" Miles
