Sunday fun! Stealing every moment we can alone in the building, today we cleared each of the spaces and did a rough run. My perpetual anxiety about overwhelming Sam with lines and direction vanished when he decided not to use the script and had all of his lines down. AMAZING. There’s still away to go […]

REM: My ‘work in progress’ Showing

Here are some images from my showing on Tuesday 30th July 2013 at Shopfront, plus the little blurb from the program!

I’m excited by the ideas they have and what they’d each like to explore – so I thought I’d introduce my collaborators! They will each share in […]

Applespiel perform ‘Awful Literature is Still Literature I Guess’ at the 2012 Underbelly Arts Festival, Cockatoo Island.
