Earthfall Dance Ltd.

Earthfall at Tanzmesse 2014, Germany

"Earthfall attended Internationale Tanzmesse, from 26th-31st August 2014. This festival, held in Dusseldorf, Germany was attended by 1500 delegates from 37 countries across the World. It is the biggest festival dedicated to promoting and developing the network for dance.

As Earthfall were the only delegates from Wales attending this International festival, Earthfall ensured that they used the opportunity to not only promote their own work but that of other dance companies in Wales. Earthfall took promotional materials for Ballet Cymru, Coreo Cymru, and National Dance Company Wales

"Earthfall’s General Manager, Development Officer and Marketing Officer attended and managed the Earthfall’s exhibition booth and ensured that at all times there were two staff members at the booth promoting both Earthfall and Dance from Wales.

Simultaneously, one member of the team was using the opportunity to go to networking events, talks and seminars which included a talk by Chichester University and an open studio event with Shobana Jeyasingh.

Earthfall and the rest of the promoters from UK held a joint networking Brunch whereby every company brought something to offer delegates from their local area. Earthfall took Welsh produce and used the opportunity to promote Dance from Wales.

As well as the exhibition, there were performances by companies from around the world. The team took it in turns to attend as many of these performances as possible, and use this to meet fellow delegates. These were a good opportunity to discuss and promote our own work as well as broadening our outlook on dance from around the world.

This project, attending Internationale Tanzmesse has given Earthfall the aspiration to develop new opportunities to promote all aspects of the company’s work. We aim to use our Education and Participation eloping relationships, using our Education and Participation programme to introduce companies and new audiences to Earthfall, and developing this into promoting our artistic work.

Looking forward we will be contacting all the new potential collaborators that we made during Tanzmesse so that in our 25th anniversary year we can begin widening our reach further across Europe and further afield."
