Hat Tricks

I planned to write about perfecting a hat trick. But, instead, these last four hours I wrote about my artistic fantasies…my way of avoiding the work that’s in front of me to do. Sigh. How my life would have been different if I’d fallen in love with mastery instead of fantasy.

Up coming performances

Working hard!Late April will be a monologue/dance-a-logue marathon time performing for Dance-a-rama on April 27th, the Berkeley Marsh the 28th, and 20 Points of View (for the Luna Dance Institute) on April 24th where I’ll be doing two dance excerpts from The Moby Dick Diaries, a WIP monologue/dance-a-logue.

One dance is called “Thief of Beauty” , the other is called “Artis Interruptus.”
“Thief of Beauty” is about my fourth grade aesthetic obsession over a flower, actually the color of a flower, that urged me to steal… followed, naturally, by a bunch of soul-crushing torment.
“Artis Interruptus” chronicles my teenage attempts to use the Great American novel, Moby Dick, as inspiration for choreographing the Great American Dance an artistic vehicle that I hoped would take me of my hyper-religious, rural California town, Porterville.
NOTE: Some of this stuff kinda-sorta happened.
See below for more information about the Dance-a-rama performance. I’ll also perform at the Berkeley Marsh Monday the 28th. I’ll post more information (like the times!) as I learn more.
