book day and news

The BOOK is here and there is so much to talk about!
Had a chance to look at it slowly last night and got the approval of family, my first audience and valued critics, so grateful to them for putting up with me!

Love to Victoria and George our compilers and editors, (a mammoth task) who sadly can't be with us today, George maybe in the air flying home!

Pep and Molly in rehearsal with Demelza (hand waving!) Zoe and Kerry behind
A big day today balancing all the events within the event!
Our last 2 shows were full of group dances, thats a lot of us in a company of up to 30!
When i first envisaged this event i thought a few solos dances and poems..
now it is 20 mins of highlights from the shows with 12 dancers, 2 poets with BSL by Demelza and a set by Skye Anna Mackay, we have so many talented musicians around.

The young group of friends in Shallal Dance Theatre of Anna, Annis, Skye and Aaron are back in the radius at present:
Anna has helped curate the show
Anna & Annis's book is getting good reviews...

INHABIT by Anna and Annis is a limited edition print of 3! although requests are coming in
compared to our new book Celebrating Heritage 100 copies!
looking forward to giving company members their free copy - it will sell at £15
Skye is putting on a benefit for us as part of the end of her course
 "I am organizing a live acoustic music event in the Falmouth Art Gallery, which is towards my final project on my music course and, we would love to dedicate the evening to raise money for 'Shallal' as a thank you from me, for having such a great childhood by being apart of Shallal. 
The event will be 4pm - 6pm oSaturday the 10th of March. 
The music will consist of my duo and two supporting musicians. My duo will be performing all original songs, so what we perform will be new and exciting material. 
I would love for you to be there and everyone at Shallal to come along and enjoy the evening."
and Aaron is back in the company.
