Thursday 19th November
Ian Pringle and S.J. visit Did Hopkins to start the process of our collaboration.
In just three hours we have a project plan, MORE dates to work together. What a glorious start to a project. We have planted the seed (commonality of impulse for street/public/art for all/ mask theatre), grown a root (the structure for our devised piece) and begun to grow the plant itself (established the starting point for making the masks). And we had a beautiful Lunch.
I am thrilled at this new beginning, it is so much more than I had wished for. It is so much more of a piece of art now that there are such a talented, experienced set of partners involved. This is such a different and alive universe now away from the world of bid writing, budget planning and administration. Ahhh, I am alive again.
Next stop, studio, drawing,researches and clay-play.
