Connection- The Process 3

This creative process couldn't be more different from the last 2 shows. Instead of being sucked into the computer for the bulk of my research, I've opened up to explore my connection with the world, my friends, nature, my boyfriend, my body, my health, joy, play and grief.

Part of me (the academic) is getting antsy. There are 6 days to go and I haven't got a show yet. It's taking some explaining to get her on board with the plan. 

I have 9 masks (parts of myself / characters) who I workshopped last week with Franki Anderson. On Sunday night, I will ask them all to help me explore the theme of connection for and with the audience.

The academic has some time carved out this week to do some standard staring at the computer research so that she can have a little bit of theory to deliver on the night. She seems happy about this, but a little worried that I chose to have delicious lunch and chewy conversation with my friend Tom yesterday and spontaneous tea with Sita in the afternoon sun when it was supposed to be the academic's time. It's a little beyond her that this is, in fact, research. 

Come and see how all this grows into a show on 2nd April at 7.30 at The Wardrobe Theatre. Pay What you Decide. Venue info here.

Facebook event here.

All the blogs from This Work In Progress Project are conveniently listed at the bottom of the first blog, which you'll find here.
