Rented a u-haul van...which is gigantic. Drove it around Philadelphia picking up my new Chinese Lion friend OJ (Thanks PENN LIONS and HENRY!) and a door from PLEASE TOUCH MUSEUM! Of course it started to rain! The incredible interns at Asian Arts Initiative helped me unload my 1000s of cardboard boxes and assemble them.
I changed locations and started arranging the boxes in the space. THEN - we crushed and destroyed all the boxes (thank interns!)
I spent the entire day dressing the set. Annie Fang my beautiful performer arrived and we workshopped a movement score for her to perform. Lighting. A run-through. Notes. Then I left the piece in the hands of Annie and the incredible team of PAPA performers. Very emotional to let go of this piece. Unfortunately I can't be there for the performance. Looking forward to hearing how the performance goes!
