Words from Ia, scenic designer, three days before opening night:“Grains of sand to mark the many touched by this terrible disease. The hourglass, and passing of time. Ever-changing. In dreams, a change of attitude or a shift in perspective. The proverbial line in the sand. …and don’t get me started on Zen gardens…!”
Sparkly white wine before our run-through yesterday. Orange juice for vitamin C and energy. A broom to sweep up the shaved hair. Lighting designer taking notes. Dancers rocking the house. Do NOT miss this show. 7 days to opening night!
The vision I had, so many months ago, has now been manifested. My spirit has been given voice and power through the dancers’ minds and bodies. And as they move about the dance studio, draped in music, the unknown becomes the known.
That which was invisible has been orchestrated and brought forth. Perfect balance, simplicity, and joy has been achieved.Celebrate with us on March 23-25, 2012!
We are exactly four weeks away from opening night, and time flows differently now. The days cascade into one another as dances are polished, videos completed, costumes defined, programs drafted, and volunteers recruited. Loose ends come closer together, and as Eleanor Roosevelt said, “You must do the thing you think you cannot do”.
