Rollercoaster rides

The great news:

At the beginning of May, 'Making Change' was accepted by Dublin Fringe Festival 2009. This is an honour: expandance are big fans of DFF. However...

The sad news:

After months of deliberation, we had to concede that without funding, it is not possible to put this show on as part of DFF. It's the first time I (Rachel) have turned down a performance opportunity because of finances in over a decade of making dance. It was a tough decision, but one which we, as a company, came to mutually. We hope that 'Making Change' will have it's chance in the near future, and we thank those of you who made the first couple of performances in New York so magical, especially Christina, Carlos Cruz, and those at BAX.

In other news, Alicia has a busy summer of expandance workshops coming up in Ireland, and we'll be posting those dates soon.
