“All people dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their mind, wake in the morning to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous people, For they dream their dreams with open eyes, And make them come true.”
- D.H. Lawrence, was an English author, poet, playwright and essayist.
To require perfection is to invite paralysis. The pattern is predictable: as you see error in what you have done, you steer your work toward what you imagine you can do perfectly. You cling ever more tightly to what you already know you can do – away from risk and exploration, and possibly further from the work of your heart. You find reasons to procrastinate, since to not work is to not make mistakes.”
“Look at your work and it tells you how it is when you hold back or when you embrace. When you are lazy, your art is lazy; when you hold back, it holds back; when you hesitate, it stands there staring, hands in its pockets. But when you commit, it comes on like blazes.
Think about props. Can’t afford props. Cut props.
Replace all props with string and bulldog clips. We can afford this.
Different characters? Can’t afford costumes. We’ll just have hats.
Later - cut hats. Doesn’t match no props.
Will not budge on TRICYCLE. BUBBLE MACHINE.
Everything else mutable.
Script? No. Can’t afford it. Improvised show.
Build structure from science.Don’t need props. Physical Comedy. (play to my strengths)
Bastard child of Paintbox and science experiments.
Helen builds hilarious stick beyond specifications (May have blown budget)
Many things don’t work. 2 hours in space to fix.
Show opens tomorrow. Media etc.
Spent three hours doing audio design.
Can’t find blank CD’s in my pile of destroyed belongings.
A bit disheartened.
valkyriebones-main asked: Hey, definitely keen to do some workshops. What's the audience? I can teach hoop, and do two different hoop workshops because otherwise all my other dance-related talents mostly include fire or fans which I only have one pair of. But I can do beginner hoop dance, and possibly an isolation workshop. But I am definitely keen to do at least one! Thanks (:
