Tick tock tick tock tick tock

I am writing this as I sit watching last minute rehearsals for The Bloodline. The performance is on Thursday so time is ticking! Everyone has so much energy and is having so much fun with what has turned out to be a very physical piece!

I’m not performing in the piece this time so I have had the pleasure of sitting in on rehearsals as SourDough have been choreographing fights, squabbles, and gruesome gruesome deaths (we felt it wouldn’t be Shakespeare without them).

Mark Ruddick Is God

We were very lucky to have a workshop and guidance by Mark Ruddick from Squire Theatre last week. We were in utter awe of the extent of how much he was able to teach us about his fascinating craft in such a small amount of time. He really is a genius and we are very grateful for his time!

We are performing on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7.30pm this week at the Bike Shed Theatre, it would be great to see you there! We have been very playful with Shakespeare . . . We have been playing with sub-plots, contexts, characters, settings and outcomes. I can’t wait to see what everyone thinks! I’d love to go into more detail but since it’s so close to performance day, I would hate to spoil it for you!

In the meantime, I will leave you a little video that shows how much fun we have really been having!

  1. Such a great video! I loved how the music seemed to match the actions/image — like when Bec was spinning the club or whatever it was she was holding, and the singer went “turning turning turning”; I don’t know if that was coincidental, but it looked brilliant!

    Great show, you guys!
