Seaside Rendezvous, March 2011

September Reflections

This piece grew from the FreeFall dancers feelings as they struggled to make sense of the events of September 11th.

It became the first FreeFall dance to be performed, and was recently revived as a film project with Coventry University.

Bren’s Special

Brendan our in-house photographer also plays and writes Rock music. This is his tribute to Freddie, complete with FreeFall slideshow.

Seaside Rendezvous

Inspired by Freddie Mercury, the music of Queen, bygone holidays at the coast, and the saucy postcards of Donald McGill. The Piece is abstract, but hopes to capture some of the many experiences of seaside holidays, from the amusement arcades to the carousel via the ice-cream sellers and fortune tellers.
