Wednesday, 5 September 2012
I went to the opening of the show last night and it was miraculous. Completely amazing, its been so nice to get to know all the performers, artists, costume makers, producers, I have made some proper new friends and I was glowing with pride seeing them in action last night. Temperance was incredibly moving. The roller skating just blew my mind. I couldn't recommend it more and I know I have to go again, because I feel I missed a lot.
It has been such a fantasy in my mind for so long and when we had decided what needed making, the
weight of my imaginings made my head feel like it was in a vice (it was a very ambitious proposal to propose with only two and a half weeks to produce it!!) My god, I have seen the sun rise in half of that time. But as the work started to be purged, my head felt lighter and lighter and by yesterday I was dizzy.
Of course I finished about four hours before showtime with just enough time to trek across London, drop my daughter off, make half my outfit, go and see my daughter riding her bike for the first time and then off to the show with chipped nails and tag still in my jacket. What a hustle!
