Mimi cat woke me at 4am. Or I woke her, and then she decided to make biscuits with her paws paws on my tummy. oy. Couldn’t sleep. Watched early morn news. Depressing. Read a book. Better. Asleep by 7:30, back up at 10:30.
Later, Dad went into town to get the AMAZING white chocolate lavender biscotti we ordered from Carl Schweizer as a gift for my aunt Candace. Who’s arriving today. Her first trip ever to NYC.
Meanwhile, Mom and I gabbed and ordered food in. I tried not to give anything away about Stieg Larsson’s 2nd book (enter the Swede, again). She HAS to read it. Or I will spill the beans. (No. I won’t. But I want to.)
Then warmed up for 2nd performance (always the toughest one, energy wise). Read the NY Times review. Smile. Press on. A speed thru with lines. Then, onstage. Just like last night, saw very good people in the audience. Warmed my heart.
Post show dinner with fam. We toast with the bottle of Sangiovese from Aunt Karen, which was excellent.
Not mutually exclusive, as I’m realizing in performance. Maybe I will be able to explain this thought in the near future. I’m generally the nice girl in the room. In other news, here’s another peek at the show, right after I drew a picture of myself.

A couple weeks ago, Cranor and I spoke with Dave about cross-genre collaboration and the way we’re approaching various technology (voiceover tracks, video, sound devices, etc). Listen to the podcast here.

Have to say, miss dancing in these twitter-sourced videos. And couldn’t resist the synchrony of my blog post #13 and Dance Theater Workshop‘s Community Choreography #13. Ah, synchrony (and I don’t believe 13 is unlucky, btw). Tweeters contribute the moves, Lauren Sharpe dances (she’s a NY Neo-Futurist and she’s fantab), and Adam Smith films and edits this bad boy. Enjoyable.
Oh. And i contributed the part where her “eyes follow a tennis match.” Being fresh off the U.S. Open and all…

Over to Claudia La Rocco’s Performance Club blog at WNYC, where she mentions the show and this blog (and those crazy DTW twitter community choreograpy videos), amongst some great performances coming this Fall.
Also. We’re now in residency at the Chocolate Factory. Here’s what’s on the board outside. Ah yes, now it’s for real.
