Falmouth based performance group Shallal2 have created their latest show, entitled Faces, based on the many characters who currently grace the walls of Falmouth Art Gallery.

The gallery’s exhibition, Faces of Cornwall, displays a wonderful range of portraits by artists including Henry Scott Tuke and Charles Napier Hemy, plus automata by local makers Fi Henshall and Keith Newstead.

Depictions of inventors Henry Trengrouse and Humphrey Davey sit alongside local characters Jack Rawling and Tuke’s housekeeper Mrs Foreacre.

Shallal2 have devised dance and drama pieces that explore the paintings and the people who feature in them. This new work incorporates live and recorded music, spoken word plus an array of hats and moustaches. The company is made of children and adults, with youngest member just three years old.

Faces will be performed at Falmouth Art Gallery on Wednesday, March 28, at 6pm. All are welcome and the performance is free.
