|Steve Tanner portraits for our book and website.|
Marjorie is our oldest member ( now in her 80's) and a founding member and unstinting support throughout all of Shallal Dance Theatre's journey. Many thanks to her from us all!
The Christmas tree decorated by Shallal 2 is still standing till end of December, at Gyllyngdune Gardens, Falmouth.
Our AGM was "the most fun meeting i've ever been to" said a recent trustee!
Our business meetings are officially something to "look forward to"
..Many years ago i sent round a note saying the principles, ( respect, listening, positive comments and support, politeness, group manners etc and joy and fun ) of the main co are something that should inform our practice throughout Shallal! - and cake!
These recent comments mean we are now embedding it though out the 'behind the scenes' parts of Shallal - thank you all!
When people give of their time, honesty, authenticity and effort freely, and generously, manners, respect and appreciation need to be there. ~However these are high ideals and we also need to know how to apologise and say sorry and move on, as none of us are perfect.
I am often reminded when creating work with people that you need to be able to disagree in art without falling out or taking offence! as then you can keep working and discussing it, i am often wrong and ideas i start of being reluctant to accept are often some of the best work in the end! which is the joy of collaboration.

Mike Sagar Fenton's review says.... "no other company speaks on this level and no other nights in the theatre do what a Shallal show does."
"It’s one of Cornwall’s great hidden treasures,"
We have funders coming to see our last Doorways Show, please tell everyone you can think of to come so we can have a packed audience for this event!
