I’m going to do a showing of Opposition on Weds 10th at Plymouth University room 319 at 3pm. Mars.tarrab show ‘Tomboy Blues’ at 4:15. I don’t think I’ll have time to send proper invites so if you read this and would like to come let me know. There’s a limit of 30 seats so not poss to just turn up on the day…

Yesterday’s rehearsal…

I did manage a run through, it was a bit painful but I now have a place to take my jacket off in the style of Jed Bartlett. I’ve also managed to put a breather in before the crazy final sequence in which the whole piece gets cut up.

Today I need to find more detail in between loud and quiet….I don’t have to push it out there so much in a small space. As Mark says – in some places I can just perform it and leave the door open for the audience to join me if they want to, or not. It sounds clearer when he says it. I also need to work on being aware of audience around the sides. If I forget them in the beginning they might not be up for chanting ‘We do big things’ with me later on…

The sun is shining.
