OK, maybe not true, but adequate. Today, we sewed a screen (out of muslin fabric stretched on 10′ x 8′ PVC frame) that we’ll use for shadow puppet dance in the Captain of the Chocolate Cake. We also created — from PVC and purple tulle — one incarnation of a Doubt. We think it’s kinda scary, even in the daylight.
What is “so true” is that we’re excited to finally grab these ideas out of our heads and make them flesh and sole and sound. The sewing is in preparation for a week of workshopping our new music/theater/dance production. We’ll gather in the Zoot Theatre Company’s space (thank you, Zoot!) beginning next Monday and create a show. You might hear music wafting out of the space near Chaminade-Julienne High School. You might hear battle scenes with swords and staffs. You might hear thunderous tapping, or a sniveling Easter Bunny, or the “argh” of a scurvy pirate. And you know we’ll be having a good time.
When can you join the good time, you ask? We’ll keep you posted. Fingers are crossed for an autumn performance, but we’re hoping for some preview and insider’s events, too. If you want to find out how to be on it, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to be added to the insider’s list. We promise not to make you sew.
