Pictures from "Creation," plus news on my Fringe Shows!
I've added pictures from my most recent show "CREATION: Births of Mythlogy," performed at Valencia College. It closed yestrday. I'm incredibly proud of my students. I directed the design, but my students truly did the hard work perfecting the designs for the puppets, incorporating their unique artistry in everything the built. I was much more of a guide than a dictator :-)
As the puppets were completed they moved into rehearsal. I directed the puppetry manipulation, which was incredibly fun! It was a great privalege to have TWO puppetry captains - Fara Fadizan and Malcolm Boniface. They gave notes when I was unable to attend rehearsals. It was a generous cast and a lovely experience. A privalege to be a part of this.
And with the close of one show comes the opening of two others. This weekend I began rehearsals for "Future Legend" by Corey Volence, to premier at the Orlando 2017 Fringe Festival. Kevin Becker is directing the show, and I am directing the movement. I'm very excited for this next collaboration! Phantasmagoria Orlando is also bringing a show to the Orlando Fringe: "Phantasmagoria: Wickedest Tales of All!" Written by John Didonna, directed by John Didonna, Kevin Becker, and Seth Kubersky. And, of course, there will be a fantasic puppet in this show! I had a final meeting with our builder Brendan McWilliams on Saturday and was incredibly impressed with his work.
Pictures and updates to come!
Love and roses,
