Christopher Hall

Twenty-one year old Christopher Hall may still be in his final year at the world famous Laban, but he hasn’t let that get in the way of his entry into the professional dance field. Having made his debut for the Sebastian Rex Dance Group in 2009’s “God Cried Woof”, Christopher returns to the fold for “Naughty” this May. How did you get involved with the Sebastian Rex Dance Group? Last September, I auditioned for him for a dance piece he was creating. The piece was “God Cried Woof” which was put on at the Blue Elephant Theatre. After working with him on that project, he kept me in mind when designing his new piece “Naughty”. He sent me and the other dancers in the last piece an email to see if we’d 10

be interested in working for him again. Unfortunately not everyone could fit the rehearsals into their schedule but there are a four of us who have returned for the Sebastian Rex experience. The experience? Tell us more... He’s a fantastic director and choreographer and has a great imagination, but it can be quite hard and sometimes surreal work. The way he creates a piece is so that his performers never feel 100% comfortable on the stage. For example, during one rehearsal we were given a movement by him and it was something that we all really loved doing as it felt really good, however as soon as we told him this he changed it straight away to something that we didnt! We soon learnt to keep our mouths closed after that!
