A Week of Workshops!

Happy Spring Break!

This week I had the amazing opportunity to present workshops for all the basic skills I'm passionate about!  I led a public speaking workshop and an object puppetry workshop for Full Sail University instuctors, and I led a Viewpoints workshop with the cast of Craigslust (one of the fantastic shows available at this years Orlando Fringe Festival).  

New Piece in development!

Hi Folks!

I have a new piece in development!  It is a 5 minute puppetry.movement short.  I'm pretty excited about it. :-)

Piece written and directed by Rebekah Lane
Performed by Rebelah lane, Chris Prueitt, and Mary Beth Spurlock

Here were the parameters for the piece:

Promt: If the world were to end tomorrow, what would you do today?

Specs:  Use at least one object, one piece of music, and up to 3 performers.

The puppet is masking tape and newspaper.  He has a wooden dowel in his head.

Interactive Work Update. Also: grading.

Hi folks,

I was asked to teach an extra class at my University this month, so I have had less time to do the theatre work I love.  

Even so, there is a bit of movement.  If you would like to learn more about TeachLivE (TLE), take a look at their most recent newsletter here: http://srealserver.eecs.ucf.edu/teachlive/newsletter/?wysija-page=1&cont....

It feels so good to be back on stage!

The reading with Mad Cow went incredibly well!  It was an honor to be on stage with some of the best actors in Orlando.  It was also wonderful to be a part of the talkback.  We often talk about how art and science are so different.  But the two are not so different when we think about questions of ethics, the process of creation and discovery, and the role of the final product in society.  There were a number of scientists in the audience this weekend.  I truly enjoyed hearign their perspectives.

Back to Work!

Hello kind reader,

I have returned to work following a wonderful and rejuvinating holiday.  Waiting for Godot was incredible.  Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen had a wonderful rapport.  They didn't play it as though they were best friends, and I liked the bit of tension that choice generated.

Today I begin rehearsals for the reading at Mad Cow.  In case you've forgotten over the holiday, I'm reading Ellen in An Experiment with an Air Pump.  I'll be workign with some of my favorite Orlando actors.  It's too bad it's only a 4 day engagement!

Rehearsals for "Words We Wear" are going wonderfully!

I'm so proud to be a part of such a talented creative team.  We managed our first stumble-thorugh for "Words We Wear" on Monday night.  It was a success.  We are still working on transitions between pieces, but it is becoming clear that the work we've done is going to pay off.

I'm officially done writing the piece "Words of my Mother," which is a 3 minute part within "Words We Wear."  One of the actors will be under a piece of fabric for the duration of the piece.  I'm sewing that fabric together this weekend.  You'll have to come see he show to see what it looks like!
