So, it’s been quite a while since I’ve last posted here – some things have happened: done some performances and little pieces here and there. It’s probably the fact that I’m turning 30 next year makes me think I’ve barely done anything sometimes (probably because I know people who do an awful lot and are barely pushing 20!).
I performed at the Nineworlds Geekfest convention this year in the Bifrost Cabaret, which felt like the biggest crowd I’ve done (I wasn’t wearing my glasses for that reason, haha!). I also composed and mastered the backing track too, which I’m really happy about – I haven’t played in a band for a while so it was nice to be recording again! Thank you to Misha Anker and the rest of the committee! I met some great people and experienced some wonderful performances/panels.
I’d also been rehearsing in a frenzy for my first one person spoken word show, which I was also the director for. I prepared the backing tracks for that too – and the writing and going off book took up a LOT of time. This was Reality Test for the Camden Fringe – and I have to say thank you to the Moors Bar Theatre for giving me a full day for get in and practice. I also need to say a MASSIVE thank you to Seth Jones who went through the script with me, read the voice over parts that were so integral to the plot, whilst doing the lighting and sound at the same time.
Since then, I’ve been correcting my PhD thesis – and that has taken a lot of word gardening. Activities have ranged from a light prune to a complete repotting, and have therefore put me in a social bubble for quite a while.
I managed to hand in the latest installment with little sleep, fuelled with custard doughnuts and coffee (some of my favourite things)!
I want to get back into Bards of the Future (which I haven’t really implemented yet), as well as some more poetry videos. I’ve been filling the gap with some poetry instagrams at http://www.instagram.com/snapsuziegeeforce in the meantime.
Hopefully see you soon!
