Check in to ‘Chelsea hotel’ at Tewkesbury’s Roses Theatre; every room has a story to tell
After the success of last year’s award-winning At Swim Two Boys, Earthfall return to Roses Theatre, Tewkesbury, with dynamic dance, live music and film in Chelsea Hotel, on Wednesday 01 May. Earthfall reveal the poetry and tragicomic events from the iconic ‘Chelsea Hotel’ and its place in contemporary culture. A voyeuristic discovery of the inhabitants lives, loves and longings.
The production blazes a trail from Warhol to Kerouac and Dylan Thomas to Patti Smith, where several stories, true and false, interplay through radical dance, live music and film, capturing significant moments in the history of this rebel artist mecca.
The piece is devised over six weeks with four dancers and three musicians, a much larger cast than last year’s production of At Swim Two Boys. Jessica Cohen, co-artistic director commented,
“With rehearsals already producing exceptional music, dance and dialogue ready for the opening tour in spring 2013, I believe Chelsea hotel will carry on the growing success of Earthfall’s productions following our previous production At Swim Two Boys.”
This rehearsal process sees the musicians and dancers working together to create an entirely new soundtrack for the piece and movement that is unique to each production. This is what helps to make Earthfall’s shows so exciting and dynamic.
Alongside the show Earthfall are hosting a series of participatory workshops for different groups. A range of workshops from half day’s to week long residencies, professional development and training days. Our education and participation work caters for any organization from secondary schools to dance companies. To find out more email firstname.lastname@example.org.
