I am so pleased to announce that I have been awarded funding support for my MFA in Devised Performance from the American Australian Association's Dame Joan Sutherland Fund. Thank you so much to the AAA for their support and making my studies possible. I look forward to working with you over the next two and a half years.
First day of 2.5 years devising theatre with Pig Iron Theatre Company. What a great and inspiring start to our journey together.
We drove for 6 days across America to get to the east coast. First three days were spectacular - Grand Canyon, Mesa Verde, Colorado mountains. What a beautiful country! Last three days a little monotonous but we did experience torrential down pours, terrifying electric storms and fascinating podcasts.
Exciting and sad news....I'm moving to Philadelphia!!! I have been accepted into University of the Arts into their Masters program. Wahoo! 2.5 years of physical theatre training. Cannot wait to start. Sad to be leaving Los Angeles and my wonderful friends. Thank you everyone for your support over the last 3 years.
I had the honor of working with my good friends, Diana Thomas and Tom Becker on their short film comedy, Hey Fibi. What happens when your android tries to break you and your boyfriend up!?
What a month it has been! I have interviewed the Mayor, a local dairy farmer, two lawyers, a primary school teacher, a German horse-breeder, two elderly Parisians who lived through WW2 and played cricket with migrants from Afghanistan and Sudan. A truly eye-opening and nourishing month. I am happy to say that I completed a first draft of the show. It's in great shape and I thoroughly enjoyed working on it (in particular meeting and talking with the locals). I look forward to interviewing more people from around the world and developing the script further.
We have arrived at our second artist residency in Cerisy-la-Foret, Normandy. We are based at Les Rochers in a beautiful little cottage. This month will be used to build upon the discoveries I made in Sweden. I will also interview French locals and uncover their thoughts about the French social system.
We presented our work to the general public today. We were expecting 12 at the most but thanks to an article published in the local newspaper about 30 people attended the showing! Our presentations went smoothly and we received very positive feedback. I'm very proud of our work and it was an honor to share it with our new Swedish friends.
