“Dealanach” rehearsals have been hotting up and you can read some of my thoughts about this over on my post entitled “Who Are Women” on the Boireannach Website. “Dealanach” is being performed as part of Boireannach Theatre’s “Into The Mire” season as part of the Vault festival on Thursday 12th at 6.15pm and Saturday 14th at 1.45pm. Book tickets here.
Tickets for “Jacques or Obedience”, part of the Network Theatre “Ionesco Double Bill” are also now on sale. If you want to see this crazy masked performance, with me playing Grandmother Jacques, book tickets here.
And to whet your appetites here’s an in-the-making shot of the Grandmother Jacque’s mask:
I finished up at East 15 on 11th July and things seem to be going quite well. I’ve had spits and spots of work, been attending some workshops and stuff, some of which through the fantastic IdeasTap site and seeing some great theatre. What I’ve really realised I want to do though, is create some new theatre.
The MAP (MA Project) work we did at East 15 was great, but no-one I worked with was particularly interested in reviving the piece. A shame as I think what we did was pretty good in the end. However, part of the lead-up to the MAP piece was to try out lots different ideas of pieces before eventually finding one to work on. One that I was particularly interested in that ended up being abandoned, was some verbatim work on Sex and Sexuality.
With the permission of those who were involved in the initial research, I’ve decided I’m going to pick up the batton. Yesterday was my first interview since the initial research and I think I got some good material. I very much want to wait until I have collated a bunch of interviews before even trying to hammer something together and I’m hoping to premier the performance at the next Queer Alternative Cabaret event (which we’re hoping will be some time in early November).
If you’re interested in being interviewed for the project and don’t mind being audio recorded talking openly about sex and your sexuality (don’t worry – the piece will perform the text so that the original speaker will be anonymous) then please get in contact! I will be blogging more on this project as and when it happens!
A few more provisional dates for your diary:
- I’ve been asked to perform my stand up at the Intrepid Fox on 12th May 2013. Provisionally it sounds like an amazing line up with some serious stand up names attached. More details as I get them!
- The show I’ll be acting in a production as part of my Diploma at Central School of Speech and Drama some time during August. We haven’t yet decided what the show will be yet but I’ll post details as soon as It’s all confirmed.
I’m going to be trying out my material this week at the following comedy nights:
Come along and see me.
