Breathe in, breathe out. Here is how the winter came and went.

We built a play, and performed it on the cusp of Spring in a farm in Ghitorni: The Winter’s Tale. It has definitely been our most ambitious project till date, both in scale and magnitude. Meaning, we went from building sets out of cardboard and almost celebrating the mundane, to spreading ourselves across three different locations and (oh, boy!) raising high the performance register, higher than we’ve ever dared to before. That was new and frightening, and a top class rush. We’re not sure when we might do something of this size next – because we’re broke now (give some money, no?) – but it was unspeakable fun, not only to be working out of our comfort zone in so many ways, but also to watch each other work after such a while apart.

Thankfully, the reaction to the production has been fairly positive so far. Everybody’s been very good to us, and some of the feedback has been properly helpful. We’ve been truly blessed to be able to work with our collaborators: the designers and photographers, the musicians, the production crew and the cast. And, of course, our roster of friends, families, demons and pets. There are some exciting possibilities in the pipeline when next we run the play – which will be in November, if all goes well – s0, come watch it if you missed it the first time or if you want to watch it again, or you know, just tell your friends.

In other news, we’re gearing up to run a bunch of workshops through the Looking Glass Project from mid-May onwards for different ages, sizes and shapes of human beings. Some of the ideas for the workshops are quite interesting, and I think they might please. Watch this space for more on the subject.

So, our year has been roughly set down now. If all goes well, we’ll have a lot to show by the time it gets dark in December. I’m not going to tell you what they are right now because if things fall through, I’m going to look like a total wanker for saying anything at all. So… Stay tuned to find out more, friends! Same bat-time, same bat-channel.
