Freefall’s 7th year sees their first international dance artist venturing to Cornwall; Lotte Dekkers who will see you diving in and out of the floor using David Zambrano’s flying-low technique – the first time this technique has been brought to Cornwall! Other National artists include the multi-talented Sioda Martin who not only will be providing dance sessions, but also yoga and group thai massage (perfect to restore us at the end of the weekend!), and Victoria Fox whose physicality is visceral, fearless with a fantastic sense of freedom. Cornwall based Rob Mennear will lead us through seamless floor work and dynamic phrasing, leading us to explore new and unique ways of moving.
