Stories from a Crowded Room.
Earthfall celebrate their 25th anniversary year in style, with a new production and a new style of performance in their latest production Stories from a Crowded Room, coming to Caernarfon, Milford Haven and Newport this May. Surrounded by broken dreams and bodies in flight; Earthfall physically embed you within the action, moving fast and close around you. This production is an all embracing experience for the audience. Earthfall tour across Wales, following their previous successful shows, the Wales Theatre Critics Award winning Chelsea Hotel and At Swim Two Boys.

The audience are invited to touch, smell, and breathe as you walk the room or hide amongst the crowd. Earthfall explore stories in motion, through highly physical dance with live music, text and encircling film. With 8 incredibly talented dancers and 2 brilliant live musicians this is Earthfall’s largest scale production and the performance plays out in a self-contained digital box, which surrounds the audience and performers alike.

“We are celebrating our 25th year through the creation of a new style of performance for us, which takes the audience on stage and directly into the world of the dancers. This immersive style has been around longer than us, but we are using new technology to help enrich audience experiences before during and after the performance. We know this is one of our most exciting shows we’ve made and can’t wait to revisit venues in wales with a fresh Earthfall approach.”
Jim Ennis, Joint Artistic Director
