Midsummer was an amazing experience, and reinspiring on personal, professional and artistic levels. I met wonderful people. I felt proud of the work. I was reminded of some super important acting lessons, and reminded of why I do what I do. Yes. Yay. There are pictures in the picture section. I should find links/files of the reviews. There are also forthcoming pictures to be added to Scheer Wonder and Scheer Foolishness.
I am back at the zoo and having a blast. Back with that crazy tamarin, Leo, and also occasionally doing The Douc, and Igor the Tiger (with a Russian accent!) They are both high status characters, which is a fun switch up from Leo, who is a classic number 2 clown.
Rehearsals for Ubu Roi are pretty frenetic! At our last rehearsal our puppet designer tightened up some of the puppet work while I myself (normally the puppet captain) was stolen by the director and fight choreographer to work on one of the fight scenes. I'm running back to my next rehearsal in five minutes.
AES is coming along. We just got into the New Orleans Fringe Festival! We'll have to add another twenty minutes of material after our Puppet Blok performances in September. Fun, stress, fun! Aaron's coming into town soon, and we're hoping to get into some busky reduced shakespeare style trouble. As always several other irons in the fire that can't be announced yet.
Off I go!
